    Video Series: The Syrian Refugee Crisis

    VIDEO SERIES: Radcliffe Foundation founder and president Frank Giustra calls on global citizens to help alleviate the refugee crisis during his trip to Idomeni, Greece, in March 2016. Directed by Debra Kellner.

SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS

The Syrian refugee crisis is unprecedented. Homes, hospitals, and schools have all come under attack. Entire cities have been reduced to rubble.

Syrian children have endured years of deprivation and displacement - they have known nothing but war. Adolescents have been raised amid continuous conflict. There are 13 million children deprived of education as a result of conflict in the region, and many of them live in these camps.
