Making sense of the Worst Refugee Crisis since World War ll

Leaving your home is not an easy decision. But the decision doesn't get easier when you know that your journey is dangers and uneasy when you don't know that there will be a good outcome. But still, conflict in the country is pushing people out. By 2014, there were 19.5 million people living as refugees, almost 3 million more in 2013. The humanitarian agency stated last year, conflict in Syria has drawn people away from the country. Almost 42,000 people leave daily. Some people moved to safer places in the country and other leave their home country completely.

Leaving the company nary might sound like a great way to start a new life, but it's not. That's because refugees are not allowed to become citizens of the country they are seeking shelter in. They have to register with the United Nations and ask for a new home. That could take 24 months and maybe even longer.
