PRODUCER: Priyanka Pruthi EDITOR: John Mims GRAPHICS: Nice Shoes The Syrian war is approaching its sixth brutal year. The bloodshed continues. The suffering deepens. We are asking you to take 60 seconds to watch this video, share it, and join us in demanding an end to the conflict. Today, leaders of humanitarian Non-Governmental Organisations and UN Agencies are making an appeal not only to governments but to citizens around the world – to add their voices in urging an end to the carnage. To urge that all parties reach agreement on a ceasefire and a path to peace.
In February, the UN's Humanitarian & Development chiefs traveled to Niger to raise awareness and funds for the looming food crisis and to promote long-term development. See the latest videos from their visit here.
In March 2012 USG/ ERC visited Syria. The aim of the two day mission was to urge all parties to agree on arrangements for humanitarian organizations to reach people in areas affected by fighting and violence.
