As the devastating war in Syria enters its seventh year, War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, has enlisted impassioned support from a host of famous faces who are raising awareness by standing with the charity to say ‘Enough is Enough’.

The haunting video to support War Child’s new campaign sees a star-studded cast of musicians, actors and comedians reading aloud the story of 17-year-old Syrian girl, Fatima, as she describes the horror of being forced to escape Syria.

Fatima and her family were forced to flee their home when conflict broke out in Syria, and she now lives as a refugee in Jordan. Fatima describes the trauma that her family has been forced to endure, losing their homes, livelihoods, and Fatima’s brother, who was killed in the conflict.

The video features appearances from War Child Global Ambassador, Carey Mulligan, BAFTA-winning actor, Jude Law, BRIT award-winning musicians, Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons and Sam Smith, mega-star Nicole Scherzinger, singer-songwriter James Bay and comedian Michael McIntyre.

Each of the supporters who features in the video makes an emotional plea demanding an end to the conflict, stating emphatically that ‘Enough is Enough.’

The video release coincides with the launch of a new report from War Child: ‘Six Years on – A War on Syria’s Children’. The reports outlines that since the conflict in Syria began on 15th March 2011, over 400,000 people have been killed including up to 55,000 children.
