Art helps young Syrian refugees

A project set up by an American artist is helping Syrian children in the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan to overcome memories of the violence and suffering they witnessed and experienced back home.

Most of the Syrian children in the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan fled across the country's borders to escape the bloody internal battle between forces loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad and those opposed to his rule.

But a project set up by an American artist is helping them overcome memories of the violence and suffering they witnessed and experienced back home.
