Chemical attacks, rockets, gunfire and just a plain lack of basic rights – to education, food and safety. That is the lot of the Syrian child.
Please sign our petition. Tell the Syrian regime enough is enough. No more breaches of international law. Protect our children now.
Dear Mr Ambassador,
This letter comes not to judge the rights and wrongs in the ongoing conflicts in your country and their tragic consequences. All we ask is that the Assad government do its utmost to minimize the involvement of children in the conflict. Injuries and deaths or minors are an unacceptable price of war.
As the 1990 Convention on the Rights of the Child states: In accordance with their obligations under international humanitarian law to protect the civilian population in armed conflicts, States Parties shall take all feasible measures to ensure protection and care of children who are affected by an armed conflict.
Thanks for your consideration.
