Hundreds displaced each day

Catholics provide Syrian refugees with medical treatment
This Catholic News Association story tells of the heartache being caused by the violence in Syria.

It was the end of March when the violence in Syria became unbearable for Salwa, a young mother who lived in the besieged city of Homs with her husband and four children. After more than a year of almost daily bloodshed, she and her family left behind everything they owned and fled Syria with nothing more than the clothes they were wearing.

They crossed the border into neighbouring Jordan, where they finally found safety in the town of Mafraq. There, with the help of Catholic Relief Services, Caritas Jordan is helping families like Salwa's get through the crisis.
