Christian Aid is imploring the international community to keep on working for peace as the Syria conflict enters its sixth year and peace talks resume today in Geneva.
‘The cessation of hostilities may be fraying and peace talks look fragile, but we must build on this brief respite to offer Syrians hope that their country can be rebuilt and that violence can come to an end’, said Frances Guy, Christian Aid’s Head of Middle East.
‘We urge all parties to the conflict to help make the peace talks a success and bring an end to the conflict in Syria, help ensure continued humanitarian aid gets to those in need and give hope to the millions of people still suffering after 5 years of war. Shattered lives deserve to hope.’
