Syria has been in a civil war for the past 5 years. 12,2 million Syrian people are depending on humanitarian aid. 92% of the Syrian refugees are given shelter in the 4 neighbouring countries. 250.000 of them have found refuge in Iraq. Over 50% of the refugees are children. The majority of them have not been educated in the past 5 years...

In December 2015 Stichting Vluchteling and VR Gorilla worked together to film this series of portraits in Kurdistan, the Northern part of Iraq.

Use a Google Cardboard, or other VR headset, to experience this scene in virtual reality.

For many refugees, the struggle to survive doesn't end after fleeing war-torn Syria. With the help of 17-year-old Khaldeya, we're taking you straight to Lebanon —via virtual reality — for an up-close glimpse of the daily hardships endured by these tenacious young women.

Working grueling five-hour days planting anise and cumin in the Bekaa Valley's red earth, Syrian refugees face scant opportunities to further their educations or even bargain for higher wages. There are no sick days for planters in this brutal landscape, whose daily $5 earnings could mean the difference between eating or going hungry. One of the many heartbreaking narratives that have stemmed from Syria's refugee crisis, Khaldeya's story embodies the amplified social and economic vulnerabilities faced by displaced women.

In the winter of 2014, I volunteered in a United Nations camp for Syrian refugees in Northern Iraq (http://blogs.worldbank.org/arabvoices/international-day-peace-syrian-refugees). Last December, nearly 2 years later, I visited the camp again to see just how the refugees had fared.

This exercise in making a 360 VR film is intended to convey the conditions of the camp and life there with the purpose of starting a conversation.

You can watch as is or with a 360 headset, like the Google Cardboard and others starting at $5 vr.google.com/cardboard

Sono passati ormai più di 2 anni,e ancora ho un bellissimo e vivo ricordo della nostra prima produzione video VR 360 per la UE Commission a Mardin a due passi dal confine turco-siariano. Per non dimenticare che nessun cannone ha mai protetto i più deboli!

An initiative started by Syrian doctors fleeing the war in their country is helping many war-wounded put their lives back together.
