“Daddy, Pick Me Up!” Child Loses Legs in Barrel Bomb Attack

childA recent barrel bombing on Idlib made yet another young Syrian child into a victim. This time, young as Abdulbasit Taan Al-Satouf lost both of his legs.

His plight has gotten worldwide attention, as video footage captured the aftermath of the bombing, as the child cries out for his father, “Daddy, pick me up!”

Tens of thousands of children just like Abdulbasit have lost arms, legs, or both as a result of the conflict in Syria. Palmyra Relief is working to help these children get prosthetic limbs as a start toward rebuilding lives that have been upended as a result of the war.

Please help us help the children
