The conflict in Syria started more than 10 years ago. It has triggered one of the worst humanitarian crises in modern history. Syrians had to leave their homes and flee to other countries across the world to seek safety. Over 6.5 million people live as refugees in Syria’s neighbourhood and Europe. But behind those numbers are human lives and many of those are children who just want to return home and live happily.
