I visited Syria in 2009, I travelled around guided by John Wreford a great friend and photographer. The people were welcoming, warm and generous. I am therefore, deeply saddened by what has happened. These pictures add to my sadness. Found on the excellent Denver Post site
As part of World Refugee Day, Save the Children commissioned photojournalist Moises Saman to document the sleeping conditions of Syrian refugee children. Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, 1.6 million Syrian refugees have fled the country. More than half of those refugees are children whose families are forced to cross borders into Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt and seek shelter in minimal and overcrowded structures. Saman visited refugees in Jordan and Lebanon to show where these children sleep.
