David Morrissey meets Syrian families living in urban dwellings
Actor and UNHCR High Profile Supporter David Morrissey travelled to Jordan to see UNHCR’s frontline work for Syrian refugees.
David started the day off meeting and talking with Syrians queueing up at the UNHCR registration offices in Amman.
There are nearly 600,000 registered Syrian refugees in Jordan, with 400 new arrivals crossing the border every day.
David met Samir and his family from the city of Homs, Syria. They were forced to flee eighteen months ago and have since been living in a basement cellar, relying on cash hand-outs from UNHCR for food and shelter.
Later, David met Mohammad and his family in the town of Azraq. Mohammad told David “My kids cannot sleep at night – they have seen terrible things and are very traumatised.”
A tender moment as David plays with Mohammad’s son, Ali.
David met Rahad and her three daughters. The eldest, Alla, dreams of becoming an interior decorator and returning to Syria to help rebuild the country.
