Syria: A generation at risk?
In this issue you'll read about how the conflict in Syria, now more than two years old, is disproportionately affecting the lives of children, who make up at least half of the refugee population. That fact alone should spur the world to action—not with military options, but with laser-focused attention on finding a political solution. At Oxfam, the crisis and unfathomable loss it has brought to Syrians is our number one priority: We won’t stand by silently and watch others suffer.
