Stop the bombs so Syrian refugees can go home

My name is Khaled, and I am writing to you from Aleppo, Syria. It was Syria’s second biggest city, but millions have fled to escape the violence, and those who have stayed have had their lives threatened by the bombs constantly dropped on the city.

I am a White Helmet. We are a group of volunteer rescue workers who rush to the site of these bombings to rescue civilians. We have saved more than 23,000 lives with our bare hands. But no matter how hard we work, innocent people are being killed by these terrible bombs. International governments must take action. They can prevent the Syrian Government’s bombers from attacking civilians.

Please ask Prime Minister, David Cameron, to stop the bombings that Syrians are fleeing from.

Syrians like me don’t want to have to leave our homes -- we are being forced out by bombs that are destroying our neighbourhoods and killing us. In February 2014 the UN Security Council banned barrel bombs. It must follow through on its demand to stop the bombs, introducing a 'no-fly zone' if necessary. Stopping the bombs would save lives, and reduce the terror that has forced so many of my fellow Syrians out of our country.

The United Kingdom and other governments across the world can save countless lives, and end one of the biggest causes of the Syrian refugee crisis, by stopping the bombings.

This single action can make a massive difference. I know fellow Syrians, now refugees in other countries, who have said that they would be back home in days if the hell that is being dropped on them from the sky was to stop.

Stopping the bombings would save thousands of lives instantly. Please help me bring my Syrian brothers and sisters back home.
