Target: United Nations
Goal: Urge the UN to bring relief to the people in Syria
As a result of a Syrian humanitarian deal, the United Nations and other aid organizations have recently been successful in evacuating numerous people from the city of Homs in Syria. Although many people were evacuated, apparently not every person was allowed to leave Homs. Men who were between the ages of fifteen and fifty-five were forced to remain in the city of Homs while nearly 200 women, children and old men were evacuated. This new deal offers just a small bit of relief in the face of an overwhelming need for aid.
The rest of the people of Homs should be able to evacuate safely. The longer they remain in Homs the more they will be under siege. The men who were not permitted to leave during the evacuation of Homs were left to either starve, or surrender and face the possibility of being tortured to death. To prevent this from happening, they need to be evacuated to a safer area.
There needs to be a new humanitarian deal the can bring continuous aid and relief to not only the men in Homs, but also to the millions of people living under siege all over Syria. If the United Nations is able to evacuate people under siege, it should at least be able to deliver aid, because the people of Syria suffering from the devastation of war need access to food, water and medicine. Urge the United Nations to deliver aid and relief to people under siege in Syria.
Dear United Nations,
It has come to my attention that although your efforts to evacuate the women, children, and elderly men of Homs has been successful, many men between the ages of fifteen and fifty-five have been forced to remain in the city of Homs. The men are left to either starve or surrender and face the possibility of being tortured to death. They need to be delivered some sort of aid or relief immediately.
The men in Homs are not the only people who need relief. In this time of devastation in Syria, there are millions of others suffering from the ravages of war. There are millions who are sick or starving that need food, water and medicine. There should be another humanitarian deal that allows them to receive the aid that they so desperately need.
Although the evacuation of 200 women, children and old men in Homs was successful in bringing them some relief, the rest of the people of Syria should not have to go without aid. There needs to be more effort to deliver them continuous aid and it needs to happen soon. Please arrange for additional humanitarian relief for the people of Syria.
