The World Monuments Fund reports that –
As families around the world gather to celebrate holidays, Syrians are experiencing not only an ongoing humanitarian tragedy, but the devastation of their irreplaceable cultural heritage. To demonstrate our support, WMF listed the cultural heritage of Syria on the 2014 World Monuments Watch and invited friends to sign our petition on
Wars and revolutions. Earthquakes. Floods. Whether natural or man-made, disasters cannot be predicted or foreseen. But once they occur, WMF is prepared to respond quickly and decisively to assess damage, undertake emergency conservation, and develop plans for recovery. We will continue to support our colleagues in Syria and will offer our assistance on the ground when the conflict ends.
