Syria's children are bearing the brunt of the ongoing conflict. The situation is critical. It is the coldest winter to hit Syria and its surrounding countries in 10 years. Refugee camps have been flooded by rain and blanketed in snow. UNICEF is appealing for urgent help to help protect children who are suffering in these extreme weather conditions.

In the grip of conflict for two years, Syrian children have been forced from their homes and are spending this winter frightened and cold.

As the freezing weather worsens, UNICEF has now declared the crisis in Syria and its neighbouring countries to be the highest level of emergency for children.

This photo was taken in January in the Za'atari refugee camp in northern Jordan. The tent belonging to this boy and his family been flooded, and they have had to be evacuated while an alternative place to stay can be found.
