At least 83 people were reportedly killed in a chemical attack in Syrias Idlib province, including 25 children — one of the deadliest chemical weapons attacks in the country in years, the New York Times reported.

The Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM) shared the casualty numbers (as well as the injury count, which is at least 350 people) with NBC News on Tuesday, the day of the attack.

It’s understandable to be horrified by today’s attack, and the many other atrocities of the war, but you don’t have to stand by and feel helpless. If you’re moved to help in some way, here are a few ways you can do so.
