Humanitarian Solutions Not Enough To Solve Political Problems

As the world is swept up in fear of the Covid-19 pandemic, it's easy to forget that many of the world's humanitarian crises still remain unresolved. One such crisis has been taking place in Syria for the past ten years. To find out more, we speak to Zairulshahfuddin Zainal Abidin of Islamic Relief Malaysia, about the humanitarian mission they're running in Idlib and Aleppo, as well as the challenges that face humanitarian organisations, when operating in a warzone.
