“6.8 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian assistance; more than 2 million are refugees; 4.25 million are displaced in their own country.
One of the world’s worst humanitarian emergencies is unfolding in Syria, and aid agencies around the globe have been sounding the alarm. At times, all the information about Syria can be overwhelming, yet we don’t always hear about those who are most impacted, civilians, women and children.
To help shed light on the humanitarian crisis in Syria and in neighbouring countries, we’re inviting the Twitter community to join us on October 3 at noon ET, for an hour-long Twitter chat using the hashtag #CRCSyria to learn more about the Syrian crisis.”
