DEC: Syrian crisis has now become a 'catastrophe'

The Chief Executive of the Disasters Emergency Committee, an organisation calling for aid to help those affected by the Syrian conflict said, the crisis in Syria has now become a "catastrophe."

Our members can get more aid to people inside Syria and to families who have fled to neighbouring countries. We are asking the public for their support for people whose lives have been ripped apart by war.

The fighting inside Syria makes delivering aid there very hard but it is not impossible.

– Saleh Saeed, DEC Chief Executive
