Children killed in conflict are not just numbers

Saher, 5, was a handsome young boy. He was a son and a brother. He was a regular participant in the activities World Vision organized in his community in Gaza, including an event organized not long ago where children flew kites to promote peace and hope for a brighter future amidst rising tensions.

Unfortunately, he is one of the more than 40 children who have been killed in the weeklong conflict to date. To all those who knew him, Saher was not a number, he was a child with potential and a future.

World Vision calls on all parties to restore peace and protect all children.
