An aid organization called “Save the Children of Gaza” is displaying photos of hungry children in difficult conditions on its Facebook page with the objective of prompting supporters to donate to the organization.
However, the photos on display are not from the Gaza Strip. They are from Syria and were taken from social media.
Save the Children of Gaza states its objective is to provide food and shelter to children and their families who are contending with a difficult reality.
“Don’t ignore them. You can help the children of Gaza and put a smile on the faces of innocent children,” the Facebook page says, with photos from Syria.
A search of the photos reveals they were posted on Twitter on December 2016 with the title “the children of Syria.”
