Syria: A Child’s Message from Yarmouk “We Search Garbage for Food”

The besieged Yarmouk section of Damascus has been cut off by Syrian forces since last July. Activists say the death toll from starvation is now more than 80.

About 18,000 residents, mainly Palestinians, remain in the neighborhood.

A boy explains the situation: “We don’t have food. We are dying of starvation.”
