Over 3 million Syrians have now fled across international borders to escape the war that rages on into its fourth year. 3 million Syrian refugees. A further 6.5 million are displaced inside Syria. Over half are children.

In May 2014, author Neil Gaiman and fashion designer Georgina Chapman spent time with Syrian refugees in Jordan gathering first hand testimony and seeing UNHCR’s frontline work. The stories, photos and videos they collected form the basis of a series of communication, fundraising and advocacy initiatives that seek to build support, empathy and understanding of the Syrian refugee crisis.

We will continue to update this page with content and news about Neil and Georgina’s work for UNHCR. Please check back in – your support is deeply appreciated.
