5. More than two million have now been turned into refugees.

The charity is trying to keep those that have been displaced and the children trapped in Syria safe and healthy.

Jack Lundie, the charity’s director of brand and communications, said: ‘We hope the video will resonate with members of the public who don’t know much about the situation in Syria so they can really understand the plight of innocent Syrian children.

‘The message to the public is just because it’s not happening here, doesn’t mean it’s not happening.’
