The Syrian humanitarian crisis has reached unimaginable proportions: 160,000 people dead and over 9 million people displaced. Since we can’t fathom the scale of the crisis, we’re not doing enough about it—not opening our borders enough, and not giving enough aid.
But if we could imagine the crisis in our own country, we might support the people of Syria with greater resolve. This site gives you country comparisons to help you picture what the death and displacement tolls would mean for a nation you know well. Then it helps you do something about it: just tweet a link, email your representative and take a look at some facts. It’s all laid out for you here.
