This videos is about the increasing number of families that are being uprooted and forced to leave their homes. These families flee to anywhere where they can go. They look for a better life and travel in hope of finding somewhere that they can start over. These people that are affected have been permanently scarred for life because they will always be in fear of something occurring because of their past. They will always be the outsiders who don't belong. The places that these families are fleeing to are doing their best to help them, but at the same time they are having to do what's best for their country and stop all of them overflowing into their home. Which sometimes means not letting them pass and making them turn around and go back to a place where their life is being threatened every second they are living there. This video is the best one because it demonstrates the \affects on an emotional level and to a point where you truly feel for all of those families. And also because it shows the other people that are being affected and how hard their decision is. because at one point they 3ant to help all of these people, but on another point they don't want to risk their status because of other people fleeing to their home.
Well over a million people have fled Syria to escape the war, and as more people continue to seek safety in refugee camps in bordering countries, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees says it is a challenge to meet the Syrian refugees’ “basic needs” and “ensure their dignity.” In an exclusive interview with On The Radar during his visit to the largest Syrian refugee camp in Jordan—now the second largest camp in the world—High Commissioner António Guterres says the Zaatari camp is “a place in the world where human tragedy is more evident than anywhere else.”“Here you can see how brutal the conflict has been, how dramatic the situation of the people is, and how difficult it is for us all to be able to support them to ensure their dignity,” Guterres tells On The Radar. This video demonstrates the tragedy of this crisis and truly shows the number of people affected by it. It doesn't only affect the people being forced to leave their homes, because then those people have to flee somewhere which then affects the place they are fleeing to.
Qaraqosh, Iraq, was turned into a war zone in August 2014 when ISIS fired mortars at the northern city. Tens of thousands of people fled their homes with just their families and their most prized possessions and headed to Erbil, Iraq. Erbil, the capital of the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, is just 20 miles from ISIS territory and one of the oldest cities on Earth. Here, about 560 Christian refugees from Qaraqosh ended up in the courtyard of the Mar Elia Chaldean Catholic Church. While Erbil is a predominantly Muslim city, Christians have called the Erbil district of Ankawa home for over 1,000 years. Though they live in small containers called "caravans" with only space heaters to keep them warm and share a handful of communal bathrooms, the refugees had found a haven at Mar Elia for the past 15 months away from the horror in Qaraqosh. Those who stayed behind in Qaraqosh were left under the control of ISIS. ISIS desecrated churches, separated men from the women and marked houses of Christians with the letter Nun -- a symbol used by ISIS in Iraq to brand the property of Christians. But the refugees can't stay in Erbil forever, where they fear there is no future for them. I chose this video because it exemplifies the degree of this crisis and how out of hand it is becoming. It also provides and example of a specific family and how it affected them and the repercussions of ISIS.
