The #Iamstillalive campaign has taken social media platforms by storm calling for the support of trapped Syrian children in the Eastern Ghouta enclave.
Pictures of children raising their hands symbolizing the “I am alive” movement have filled social feeds. The touching pictures catalyzed the nation to join.
Bombings, raids, displacement, homelessness, hunger and lack of medical attention are a daily for the children of the besieged city. Despite UN calls for a humanitarian ceasefire, the attacks have persisted.
