The Doctors of the World charity is selling Christmas cards. They show traditional Christmas scenes with images of the war in Syria. The charity wants people to remember the suffering in Syria. The cards show Mary and Joseph, Jesus and the three wise men. They are in destroyed towns with missiles and warplanes in the sky.

The charity's website says people must remember that millions of people have no home because of war. Money from the cards will give medicine and healthcare to those who need it the most. The money will help to offer hope. The UN says that 65 million people have left their homes because of war.
