Aleppo was once the heart of Syria and today after six years from the beginning of Syrian Civil War, the beautiful city of Aleppo and its population is being merely reduced to ashes. The innocent people were shammed amid the war of religion and ideologies between the President Bashar al-Assad's control in West and protesters in the East.
Today the people of Aleppo are running out of food, water and medical supplies. Assad forces are killing and destroying children and women along with public institutions like hospitals are being attacked.
We need to rise beyond the subjects of power and politics to unveil the wisdom and humanity hidden deep within our hearts. There are a number of charities and organisations where you can make donations for Syrians and make this world a better place to live in.
The air raids continued and were put on hold after warning eastern residents to 'leave or die'.
UN will work on the three-pronged evacuation plan with ICRC and WHO to save and provide medical aid to the downtrodden people of Syria. Jan Egeland, the UN Senior Adviser on Syria said, "We all feel strongly that the history of Aleppo through this war will be a 'black chapter' in the history of international relations. It took 4,000 years to build Aleppo, hundreds of generations, yet one generation managed to tear it down in four years. Aleppo, for three thousand years, gave to the world civilisation and world civilisation was not there to assist the people of Aleppo when they needed us the most."
Death seems something that these little children of Syria received as a bane since birth. The parents are fighting a battle of life and death between saving their children and finding a place to live in.
The two general hospitals that were responsible for providing care and saving lives of people were damaged during Russian air bombings in November. W.H.O. mentioned that majority of people in Syria are living without hospital care, "Although some health services are still available through small clinics, residents no longer have access to trauma care, major surgeries, and other consultations for serious health conditions," the health organisation said in a statement issued Sunday.
More than 4,30,000 people of Syria are dead by now, and 9.7 million continue to stay there because some of them 'don't have a choice'. The local residents can't walk open on the streets because they are under constant life threats. Many countries like the U.S. and Germany are willing to provide aid and shelter to the refugees, but most of them are not even able to make it across countries, they die anyway.
The battleground of Aleppo is nothing but a face of degrading humanity and life. The cost of life and love is nothing in this sector of power and prejudice. We are proud of groups like White Helmets who are continuously putting efforts in making the friable conditions of this place sustainable to live in.
The University of Edinburgh took an initiative of 'a light for Aleppo, a light for all' which awakened myriad communities all over the world to provide donations and condolences to the ashes of unimaginable numbers of dead in Aleppo and Syria as a whole.
