Many refugees fleeing Syria have died, but a photo of a young boy who drowned in flight from his homeland has made the attendant suffering of their plight unspeakable.

"Refugee and aid charities across the country say they have been inundated with offers of support, after a shocking image of a drowned Syrian child focused the public’s attention of the grim reality of the refugee crisis.

"Grassroots groups are springing up across the country as local activists arrange protests this weekend, call on local councils to welcome refugees and send aid to refugees across the Middle East and Mediterranean."--Jamie Merrill, The Independent
