Fleeing to safety but finding landmines - The situation for Syrian Refugees
In late January I attended a briefing from the UN’s Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on the humanitarian crisis in Syria. At the time there were nearly 700,000 Syrian refugees who had fled their homes to escape the violence and brutality occurring in their country. Now, just over a month later, that number has grown to over 1 million. According to a recent CNN report, the number of Syrian refugees could double, and possibly triple, but the end of the year if the situation does not change.
