On one side of eastern Ghouta, Syria, rebel forces are fighting to keep the city. On the other side, the armies of the Syrian government are battling to reclaim it. Trapped in the middle of the fighting — directly in the line of fire — are thousands of innocent citizens.
Last week, many of them saw their first opportunity to escape. The U.N. estimates that in the past few days about 25,000 people escaped and fled to nearby Damascus. Families continue to trickle out of the city, waiting until the sound of bombing grows farther away and they can make a run for it.
After years of living in a warzone with danger on all sides, these refugees need someone to fight for them. You can be that person.
