Thanks to support from people like you in over 150 countries, Oxfam and partners have now gathered over 100,000 signatures calling for urgent progress on Syria peace talks. That’s roughly equivalent to one for every man, woman and child killed in the conflict to date. We asking @charles elliott elliott Thurgood @MFA_Russia @LakhdarBrahimi set a date for #SyriaPeaceTalks.

Don’t let Syria down, join us and sign the petition calling for #SyriaPeaceTalks #1600000Refugees

The numbers generated by the ongoing conflict in Syria are truly shocking. This Saturday, 9 December, will be the 1000th day of the conflict in Syria. In that time, over 100,000 people have lost their lives. More than 2 million Syrians have fled. The killing must stop. Time for a #ceasefire and the Geneva II peace talks.

Amidst the horrific images coming out of Syria this week, the UN has announced that more than 1 million children from that war-torn country are now refugees. There can be few things more distressing than the experience of war and exile, and the WHO estimates that over half of all refugees have mental health problems. Children, witnessing violence and displacement so early in their development, are particularly at risk from the effects of trauma and distress. Call for #SyriaPeaceTalks now!

The UN has announced that more than one million children from war-torn Syria are now refugees. There can be few things more distressing than the experience of war and exile. Farah, 10, explains: “We were living in peace and security in Syria. The bombing started and our area was hit. Seven of our neighbors died. When I saw people slaughtered in front of me I was afraid and I started to cry.” #SyriaPeaceTalks now!

More than 4,400 people were killed during in the month of Ramadan alone. There are nearly 2 million refugees now in Jordan and Lebanon. And some 7 million people inside Syria are in need of urgent food aid. Without the international will to stop this, the conflict will continue and more lives will be lost. #SyriaPeaceTalks are needed now!

93,000 lives lost in Syria. It's time to prioritize peace talks, not send more weapons into the conflict that will only add more fuel to the fire.

Oxfam GB raised £500,000 in just 12 days for Syria's refugees. Thank you!
