Hunger in a war zone: The growing crisis behind the Syria conflict

A report on the state of hunger in Syria, released by Save the Children.

War in Syria has claimed thousands of children’s lives. Millions more are still inside Syria, caught in a conflict not of their own making, a conflict that is destroying the means of sustaining life: food, water, healthcare.

The briefing  carries a stark warning: not only is the international community failing to bring a peaceful end to this conflict, we are compounding that failure by neglecting to address its dreadful consequences effectively.

This briefing outlines the growing hunger crisis in Syria, the challenges to getting humanitarian aid to families who need it, and the steps that Save the Children believes are needed to overcome those challenges.

The Spanish version of this report: "Hambre en zona de guerra: La creciente crisis detrás del conflicto de Siria", is available at the upper right-hand corner of this page.
