Below are some of the faces of those who have been caught up in the conflict in Aleppo. Facing an uncertain future, most are setting out on a journey trusting that it will lead to some sort of security and a better life. They represent thousands who have had to flee for their lives. The besieged eastern districts of Aleppo came under intense airstrikes that killed hundreds in the past two weeks. More than 250,000 people are believed trapped there with limited access to food, water and medical supplies. They include more than 100,000 children, the U.N. says.
We can’t imagine what these people have been through. Our prayer is for their safety, health, and that they may find ways to rebuild their lives over weeks and months.
