Nothing brings home the tragedy of thousands without a place to call home than the heartbreaking image of a drowned Syrian toddler who washed up on the shores of Turkey.
Nearly 4 million Syrian refugees have been forced to flee the ravages of war in their homeland and live in neighboring countries. But deteriorating conditions and a dismal future in the refugee camps have them fleeing further. Many set out for Europe in hopes of survival and a better future.
But it’s not as easy as it seems.
More than 2,500 migrants have died in a number of smuggling incidents at sea and on land.
Nevertheless, what they leave behind is far bleaker than anything that the future may hold for them.
