Syria was once a thriving and beautiful country. I cannot imagine what it must feel like to live under constant bombardment and to see the fear in your children's eyes while wondering whether every day will be your last. Many people feel powerless as I do to help the victims of the Syrian war. The least we can do is to show solidarity with their suffering. I have chosen to do this by publishing the photographs below which show the ravages of war. The victims once had lives just like we do in the Western world.
