Violence around the world has forced millions of people to leave their homes. Shadi Martini was one of them, fleeing Syria’s brutal civil war five years ago.
More than 5 million Syrians have been forced to leave the country in just over six years, an estimated half of whom are children. Shadi, who managed a hospital in Aleppo, was forced to leave after he, along with his colleagues, were found to be covertly helping injured civilians.
As we commemorate World Refugee Day this week, Shadi will give us his own account of leaving the country and update us on his efforts to help Syrians trying to seek safety abroad in an atmosphere that has become increasingly hostile to Muslim refugees.
