Syria: No Strings
Witness meets three Syrian children seeking refuge over the Turkish border where teachers try to help them cope with the trauma of war.
Over the past three years, many of the small towns on the Turkish side of Syrias’s northern border have been inundated with refugees fleeing the conflict.
Kilis is one of these towns, in 2013 it was estimated to be home to 40,000 Syrian refugees, and this figure is steadily rising.
Most of the Syrian refugees are children – many of them have been exposed to severe trauma, all have faced agonising hardships.
