Syrian conflict: Helping children through the horror of bomb blasts - BBC News

Bombs have far more harmful effects on children, both physically and psychologically. And yet medics in warzones continue to rely on training and techniques designed for adults.

At the request of doctors in Syria – Save the Children have created the first ‘blast injury manual’ for children left disabled or traumatised by explosive weapons, based on ground-breaking research with British scientists at Imperial College London.

Catrin Nye travelled to the Turkey - Syria border to meet the Syrian surgeons who need it.
