Urgent call: Save Madaya from starvation!!

type:Petition
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

In the besieged town of Madaya, starving children are eating tree leaves, cats and insects. The Assad regime is literally starving over 40,000 people to death.

A truce to lift the siege on Madaya and other cities was brokered in September, but civilians are still trapped inside without food and medicine. Aid conveys are right now entering the town, and with all the world's attention on Madaya, there is finally a chance to get the siege lifted entirely to save the people of Madaya.

Help the Avaaz team to achieve a one million strong outcry calling on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to intervene and work with all sides! This way we could save thousands of families from starving to death in Madaya. Add your voice to this urgent petition!
