Omar is a nine-year-old Syrian refugee boy who suffers a debilitating hormone deficiency. Untreated for the three years that he lived as a refugee in Lebanon, Omar was resettled last year to Finland. Join his friend Warda Al-Jawahiry, herself a former refugee, on a journey to Finland to see how he is faring in his new home.

This #VirtualReality film was made in cooperation with Nokia and The Humanitarian Cooperative to show the impact of the ongoing refugee crisis through a new lens. #MakeTechHumanitarian
