CWN Editor's Note: Father Hugo Alaniz, a missionary priest in Aleppo, discusses the disastrous economic conditions in Syria because of war and economic sanctions.

“I estimate that a family of four or five people would need around $350-$400 a month to live on, yet salaries are usually around just $25,” he says. “In other words, they are not living, but simply subsisting. It is very difficult for them.”
