Berliner Philharmoniker ask for support for UNICEF petition

12 Mar 2014

In their role as international UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, the Berliner Philharmoniker ask you to support a petition for Syria's children. Together with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), UNICEF is appealing worldwide for signatures for Syrian children. The conflict in Syria and neighbouring countries is one of the worst humanitarian disasters in recent years. In the most difficult of circumstances, UNICEF provides emergency relief - with clean drinking water, medicine, emergency schools and childcare.

With five demands, the international petition addresses everyone who can stop the bloodshed and save this generation of Syrian children. For example, the petition calls for an end to violence against the children of Syria, an end to blocking of humanitarian assistance, and more investment in the education and psychological protection of all children affected by the conflict. The aim is to collect one million signatures worldwide by 15 March 2014 – please add your signature!

The petition and further information can be found at the following links.
