The United Nations has been unable to provide aid to those in besieged areas of Syria, and many are dying because of lack of medical care. Even though the areas to which the United Nations proposed to provide aid were approved, layers of necessary government approval have prevented the United Nations from carrying out relief efforts. The United Nations has been unable to deliver aid. It breaks my heart what is happening in Syria. Lots of people are suffering and I feel helpless to do anything about it. The devastating effects of war on individual lives is tragic.
