On July 11 the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) called for European nations to do more to help Syrian refugees who are trying in growing numbers to reach the safety of Europe. Their new report, Syrian Refugees in Europe: What Europe can do to Ensure Protection and Solidarity, found that Europe is shouldering only a small part of the Syrian refugee problem. According to the organisation just four per cent of Syrian refugees have sought asylum in Europe.The video above was published to coincide with the report and features a report on a family who fled Syria, seeking refuge in Norway. UNHCR notes that: “After their family fled Syria, young brothers Mohamed and Youssef still were not safe. Unable to access medical treatment for serious heart and kidney conditions, they and the rest of their family were accepted for emergency resettlement to Norway.” Credit: Edith Champagne
