Coldplay, Sam Smith, Florence Welch Support War Child's 'Enough is Enough' Video on Devastating Syrian War
Coldplay's Chris Martin, Sam Smith and Florence Welch are among the celebrities who've thrown their support behind "Enough is Enough," a video from the War Child UK charity marking the seventh year of the devastating Syrian war. The stark two-minute video tells the story of 17-year-old Syrian girl Fatima as she describes being forced to escape her homeland.
The video's release on Tuesday (March 14) coincided with the launch of a new report from War Child: "Six Years on – A War on Syria’s Children," which chronicles the more than 400,000 people who've been killed -- including nearly 55,000 children -- since the Syrian war began on March 15, 2011. According to War Child: "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."
Among the movie and music stars reading Fatima's story in the clip are actor Jude Law, War Child Global Ambassador actress Carey Mulligan, Mumford and Sons' Marcus Mumford, Smith, Nicole Scherzinger, James Bay and comedian Michael McIntyre.
