Eight years of civil war in Syria has caused over 5 million Syrians to flee their homes to the neighboring countries of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. Many others have made difficult journeys to Europe and North America.
3 Generations has been documenting the plight of these refugees since 2013. We have interviewed a number of them focusing on their individual stories. Stories that tell of their struggles but also shine a light on their humanity, dignity, and sense of community. It is important to tell these stories so that people can have a better understanding of the Syrian refugee crisis and help build momentum for focused action.
Over the last 5 years, 3 Generations has filmed many stories. We produced the short film, Three, about refugees in Jordan. and the feature documentary, Lost in Lebanon, about Syrian refugees who fled to Lebanon. We also have filmed additional short videos and put them on our website.
We continue to follow the progress of those we have filmed and to make their stories available to broad audiences. On that front, we have good news to share. Nemr, one of the refugees featured in Lost in Lebanon, has recently found sanctuary in Canada. He can now begin to heal and rebuild his life in safety and with dignity.
It is only with your support that we can bring these stories to light and continue our fight to help those affected by the war in Syria. We invite you to visit our website www.3generations.org for more updates on this and all of our current projects.
