There are an estimated 7.7 million girls and boys living in conflict zones today who aren't immunised against preventable diseases. Children from countries like Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Yemen face a lifetime of suffering or even death. Together we must act. Please help.
Salih, seven, from Syria received his measles vaccine during a recent immunisation campaign. As Syria’s long running civil conflict recently entered its ninth year and 2018 was the most deadly for children there, Salih has known only war and insecurity during his short life.
Uprooted from his home in rural Aleppo due to fierce violence, Salih and his family escaped to relative safety three years ago. He now, once again, lives near the front line of a conflict which could escalate at any moment.
But Salih is one of the lucky ones who is already vaccinated. Millions of children aren’t. Health workers on the ground need your help to reach them.
