Pokemon Go will help children in Syria
The public around the world captured Pokemon game Go. These days, Pokemon are everywhere. Whether you're in Central Park, on the streets of San Francisco or the area even landmine-ridden Bosnia, the important thing is that you can find Pikachu.

The society asks fanatical gamers in Syria to take a break from hunting for the digital creatures and to draw their attention on providing assistance to Syrian families caught up in war zones.

"I'm in Syria. ... Save me !!" is the banner of the revolutionary forces of Syria Media Group on Twitter. Children hold signs in Arabic and English with being the pokц?mon to draw attention to himself. One of the children pleads, "I'm in the area East of Ghouta, Syria Come to save me!"

Ghouta was a place where civilians were attacked with chemical weapons in September 2013, with the result that many children died. Another tweet shows the boy at an unknown location in Syrian city, sitting on the rubble on the street with a crying pokemon next to him.

Another Syrian designer also uses the popularity of the game, with the backdrop of the Syrian war to emphasize the plight of the people trapped in the grasp of a 5-year-old conflict. In a series of images under the title Syria Go, Saif Aldeen, Tahhan took real footage of the Syrian war - destroyed houses, an airstrike in action, abandoned the school - image of the real world during the war.

"People in social media talking about Pokemon all the time, so I created these images to draw attention to the suffering during the war and to show that the Syrians are really looking for," said Tahhan. Since the beginning of the Syrian war in 2010, almost 5 million Syrians are registered as refugees. "I can tell you, the Syrian people are not looking for Pokemon."
