[Correspondence] Do not forget the orphan children of Syria

As Syria’s humanitarian plight begins its sixth year in March, 2016, nearly 1 million children have been estimated to have become orphans after losing their parents.1 Many orphan children are living in Syria, but many more children have fled the country, and are psychologically affected by their situation in addition to other injuries they might have. To make matters worse, many orphan children in the bordering refugee countries have been sent out to work, mostly in unsafe types of child labour, to help in surviving.
