The International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC) marked World Refugee Day 2018 launching the book «Through A Different Lens,» which features compelling photos and stories from young Syrian refugees in Jordan.
Syrian children and youth are more than half of the total refugee population in Jordan. They face many challenges, but when given the opportunity, they show that their voices are strong and fearless. We only need to listen.
