(Newsdeeply) – For a few days in October, a tiny, starving baby girl became the face of the war in Syria. Images of one-month-old Sahar Dofdaa, from Syria’s opposition-held Eastern Ghouta, showed her fragile 4lb (less than 2kg) body, with sunken eyes and bones protruding beneath her thin gray skin. The news of her death highlighted how the conflict contributes to preventable deaths, especially among women and children, the population’s most vulnerable people.
