This Christmas we’re asking you show solidarity with Syria’s children.
We’re on the ground in Syria, supporting children and families delivering clean water and sanitation services, supporting health clinics and hospitals, providing spaces for women and young children to seek refuge and receive support. We’re also preparing thousands of blankets and mattresses to provide to families due to flee Aleppo. http://www.worldvision.org.uk/news-and-views/blog/2016/december/fleeing-aleppo-one-familys-story-leaving-war-torn-city/
Please
1. Express Solidarity: Put a burning candle in your window, take a photo or a small video clip and post it with the hashtag #Candle4Syria on Facebook or Twitter.
2. Demand Peace: Ask your leaders take action to end the violence in Syria - you can contact them here https://www.writetothem.com
3. Support Syrians: Donate to NGOs on the ground that can help to alleviate some of the suffering

"When I was in primary school all my friends went through FGM. My friends thought I was just scared to go through it - that I was taking forever to get cut. They would constantly ask why I was not getting cut."
Kenyan activist Betty Lolgisoi blogs about saying no to female genital mutilation (FGM), the stigmatisation she and her family experienced, and working with World Vision to encourage other girls to avoid the practice too.

In Lebanon last weekend, these boys were giving up their coats to keep their baby siblings warm in the snowstorm. Winter is a struggle for thousands of Syrian refugees each year, and children desperately need basics like coats, boots, and gas for heating. You can help these children by taking part in #BarefootCoatless next Wednesday 10 February. Just £14 could buy a coat for a Syrian child.

Today is World Day Against Child Labour and we wanted to share Sayna's story. At just twelve years old, she should be in school, studying for exams and spending time with her friends. Instead Sayna has been working as a brick-maker since the age of eight.
