Nine years of violence have brought death and destruction to Syria. Millions of people have been forced from their homes or have fled the country. Many of them are children.
In the Idlib area, security and living conditions are rapidly deteriorating, hundreds of thousands of newly displaced civilians are running out of options to find basic safety for themselves and their families.
In spite of the dangers, the International Committee of the Red Cross has been providing food and life-saving support to Syrians since the beginning. We, alongside the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, are one of the few humanitarian organizations that can help people in hard-to-reach areas.
But the scale of the crisis is greater than anything we have faced in the last 15 years. We must do more.
