Dr Patrick Sookhdeo is the International Director of Barnabas Fund which provides practical aid for the church where Christians face persecution, discrimination or disadvantage. In this interview with the ACL's Katherine Spackman he talks about the situation in Syria which he says couldn't be any worse despite the recent political movement with the destruction of chemical weapons. He says the problems lies with the humanitarian issue as a result of war. For example, one part of Aleppo which is made up of 2 million people is controlled by rebel forces via checkpoint and food and water has disappeared. He says a quarter of the Syrian population is suffering hunger in one form or another.
