Beginning in 2011 with the start of the civil war in Syria, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children have fled their home lands in search of security and a place to call home, even if only temporarily.
In January 2017, UNHCR had nearly 5 million registered Syrian refugees, yet estimated that nearly 14 million Syrians were in need of humanitarian aid.
Thanks to the generosity of different countries, many refugee families have been able to settle down and begin a "normal" life, yet there are still countless people who are either waiting for the war to end so that they can return home, or are searching for a new place to call home.
