"Hospitals are full, they're overflowing, you know, the emergency wards with boys and girls, shrapnel wounds, horrendous burns. They're not just on hospital beds inside, but these incredible health staff, incredible doctors, nurses working around the clock. But they're out of space. It's a war zone. So you've got children in car parks and gardens, on beds everywhere. Then, of course, you've got, you know, hundreds of thousands of children who are not in school, who are in very overcrowded camps, who are cold. It's starting to rain, who do not have enough food, who do not have enough water, who are now at risk of a disease outbreak. It's a horrendous situation."
