Actress and IRC Voice Sarah Wayne Callies recently visited the Domiz camp in northern Iraq, where hundreds of Syrian refugees are arriving daily. In this video, she describes the challenges of everyday life in Domiz and the remarkable courage of the people she met there.
Two years after the start of what has become a full-fledged civil war, the crisis in Syria threatens the entire Middle East with a humanitarian disaster. More than 1 million Syrians have fled to neighboring countries, and thousands more are crossing borders every day.
The IRC is providing critical aid to Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. Watch the video to learn more about Callies’ visit and the IRC’s lifesaving work.
