Inspired by Syria, Confronting Video Imagines the Ravages of War If It Happened in the West

Save the Children released a haunting video that imagines one little girl’s life ravaged by war in the course of one year. Inspired by the 5 million young people displaced and affected by the Syrian conflict, the brief clips follow a British child’s experience if combat violence tore apart her home and family. The intimate first-person perspective powerfully illustrates why it is so important to be aware and give help to those suffering across the world. Marking the third anniversary of the Syrian crisis, the video’s message is a timely reminder – “Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.”
