Seventeen-year-old London college student, Milto recently met with 15-year-old Kawthar, a Syrian refugee living in Azraq refugee camp in Jordan to share their experiences growing up as teens.
The heart-warming video call between the teenagers was made possible by World Vision UK and contemporary Christian church, Hillsong UK.
Kawthar was just five when her family fled the conflict in Syria. This month (15 March) marked ten years since the conflict began. The war continues to devastate the country and has created one of the worst refugee crises of our time – an estimated 6.6 million Syrians remain displaced in neighbouring countries in desperate need of humanitarian assistance, of whom 2.5 million are children.
