NOTE TO EDITORS/NEWS DIRECTORS: As the Syrian Civil War is entering its fourth year, a startling report by UNICEF is shedding light on the immense suffering of the children of Syria. More than 10,000 children have been killed as a result of the conflict, almost 3 million are displaced inside Syria and another 1.2 million have fled to refugee camps. Andrew Natsios, a former USAID administrator and currently a professor at Texas A&M University’s Bush School of Government & Public Service, is an expert in conflict and humanitarian aid and can explain how best to provide aid and protect children in these dire circumstances.
