Bissan Fakih, a Syrian activist and campaigner wrote a heart-rendering report from the besieged suburb Ghouta before the recent chemical attacks. More than 1330 civilians lost their lives during these attacks of the Syrian regime and their Russian ally, among them 234 children. Around 130,000 people fled the area of Eastern Ghouta.

The civil society of Ghouta survived brutal assaults in the past months and an ongoing siege of 5 years - “longer even than the siege of Leningrad”, writes Bissan in her report posted on The Syria Campaign, a human rights organization that supports Syria’s civil society through widespread campaign work.

Read her full plea for humanity, activism and engagement here and feel encouraged to support this important project which aims to amplify the voices of the unheard people leaving Ghouta.
