Widowed in Assad’s war against the country, this mother sits on a freezing cold street in Damascus, Syria with the only things she has left on Earth, her two babies.
Not only is Homs, Syria destroyed and without power, water, food or medical care … but it’s also freezing cold.
This is Assad. This is what he does.
Not only do Syrians have to wait in absurdly long lines in the freezing snow to get some bread, but they have to face the fact that Assad’s airforce might bomb them while they wait …

WHAT DID YOUR LAST MEAL TASTE LIKE? DID YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT? DID YOU HAVE TO SCOUR THE STREETS FOR IT? THESE CHILDREN DID. Homs (Khalidiyeh): Mar 2, 2012 - A little boy eats what he can find next to a carton of his worldly belongings. He’s filthy. He’s hungry and he’s freezing cold.
The man asks “Do you like Bashar Al Assad?” He (and his buddy) respond “No, becasue he’s a traitor”. “Why are you eating here, dont you have food at home?” The boy smiles and says “No”.
Please help these children. Please Donate to Syria Today via Avaaz.org
