The United Nations Security Council has reduced cross-border aid to war-torn Syria, effectively shutting down the most direct route to food, shelter, and medical assistance that millions of Syrians depend on for survival.
To make matters even worse, the first case of COVID-19 was just reported in Idlib, Syria. The Security Council’s decision will only increase the suffering of those in need, particularly women and children, and leave lives on the line.
Now is the time to speak up. You can take immediate action and urge your members of Congress to fight for Syrians and all those living in crisis by prioritizing robust, needs-based humanitarian assistance when it’s needed most.
