Photo of the week: education in jeopardy

Syrian Arab Republic, 2013: Nearly four years into the Syrian crisis, children continue to suffer the most amid the destruction of basic infrastructure. The conflict has kept nearly 2.3 million children in the country out of school. In Homs, capital of Homs Governorate, children attend a kindergarten where sounds of the fighting and shelling are at times heard during class, and the students wear their coats indoors to stay warm due to frequent power outages.
