So heartbreaking

The International Rescue Committee recently released a new report that says that the increasing incidents of rape and sexual violence is forcing scores of Syrian women and girls to flee their homes. Using rape as a weapon of war, it is not surprising that nearly 600,000 have fled the country.

Thank you for keeping us updated on the situation. With neither side making advances to find a peace deal, there seems to be no choice for the Syrian people but to flee the suffering and violence. I pray for your country and hope the international community steps in before Syria tears itself apart.
