A CHILD’S LIVING NIGHTMARE
The Trauma of Syria’s Six-Year War
For the past six years, Syria’s children have been bombed, shot at and starved to death. They’ve seen loved ones killed or injured, right before their eyes. Their homes and schools reduced to rubble. Their families torn apart.
These traumatized children are showing signs of severe psychological distress, with possibly lifelong effects. Some are withdrawn, others act out. Some have lost the ability to speak. Many experience violent nightmares or can’t sleep at all, fearing they’ll never wake up.
We must act now – before a generation of Syria’s children suffer emotional wounds that may never heal. Stop the nightmares!
