Syrian Children Scavenge for Breadcrumbs

syrianchildren

In this video, a ten-year-old girl in the Al Hajar Al Aswad suburb of Damascus, Syria, talks about her life of hunger as she scavenges for breadcrumbs with her brother. While the conflict between Assad’s regime and the rebel fighters drags on, civilians are facing severe shortages of food, water, and electricity. Every day, children die from malnutrition.

May all beings be free of hunger.

May all beings be safe and happy.

May all beings be free of suffering.
