Kurdistan Region of Iraq: Syrian refugee family moves back to camp
Description: Six years since the start of the Syrian conflict, life is getting increasingly tough for Syrian refugees in Iraq. More than 4,300 families in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq are hoping to move from substandard low-rent homes in villages and towns, to a UNHCR-supported refugee camp where shelter, education and other services are provided. But most of the camps are full and only limited numbers of the most vulnerable families will be able to make the move. “Life in exile is very difficult. Back in Kobane, we had friends; childhood friends we grew up with and family we loved. When we came here we knew no one,” he says. “We have to ration everything, we have to cut out many things from our lives to save up to pay rent, and sometimes we even skip meals.” www.unhcr.org/news/stories/2017/3/58c815644/iraqi-camps-syrians-seek-respite-hardship-exile.html Information for media: If you would like to use this video to communicate refugee stories or require B-Roll, transcripts, stills or much more information, please contact us at drozditb@unhcr.org or tibaw@unhcr.org. --- Keep up to date with our latest videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/unhcr?sub_confirmation=1 -- UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, works to protect and assist those fleeing war and persecution.

Dolls of hope in Lebanon (TRAILER)
Description: “Each doll holds the name of the person whose story it carries.” In April last year, the Mousalli family – a Lebanese father, Syrian mother, and their daughters Marianne and Melina – decided to bring the stories and dreams of Syrian mothers in war-torn Aleppo closer to the world. Through a relative who remains in Syria, they collect the stories of ordinary Syrians, then turn them into sketches and have them embroidered onto cotton dolls by Syrian refugee women. Entitled ‘The Ana Collection’ – the word ‘Ana’ means ‘me’ in Arabic – the project seeks to address the hidden pain of Syrians who remain inside a country ravaged by war, through art and self-expression.
