The hope of a bright future

It is sometimes difficult to imagine what impact of civil war can have on children. It might sometimes seem far away from our daily lives and routines so to picture the horrendous plight of Syria’s children can often prove difficult to comprehend. But it’s crucial that we not only remember the trauma, but actually do what we can to try and end their turmoil.

March 2014 marked the third year anniversary of the conflict in Syria. Since 2012 Unilever has supported the work of Save the Children as they strive to improve the lives of Syria’s children and give them the chance of a bright future that they deserve. We hope that this is the last anniversary of this tragedy, but we need your help to make this a reality.

Save the Children need your support to shine a light of hope for the people of Syria to send a clear message to the world that we will not give up on the children of Syria. We will show every child struggling to survive through this conflict, that we are #WithSyria. Together, we can show the world that there's huge public support to do more for the children of Syria.

Show your support and stand #WithSyria by:

  • Sharing the video and support the message that just because it isn’t happening here doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.
  • Sharing your image to Faces for Syria through Facebook or Twitter to help us ensure the plight of Syria's children is not forgotten

Your picture will join thousands of others to form the face of a Syrian child. On 14 March this iconic image will be shared online to send a powerful message of support.

To date, Save the Children have helped them reach over 1 million people with lifesaving food, water and shelter and helped to give children the basics they need to survive and cope through the toughest times. Thanks to your help through the launch of Project Sunlight we were able to support Save the Children to help improve the lives of Syria’s children.

In spite of endless support, the humanitarian needs in Syria are ongoing, and providing life-saving services to Syrian children and their families remains a priority. This anniversary reminds us that there is still work to be done and together, we should ensure we are doing all we can to ensure a bright future for Syria's children.
