Syrian woman's 2,200-mile journey to 'save' her daughter

As the fighting worsened in Syria, Hazar Almahmoud knew she and her daughter had to flee.

So they embarked on a perilous 2,200-mile journey by car, plane and boat for the safety of the UK.

It meant paying a total of 13,000 Euros to smugglers and risking their lives to seek asylum.

Now she calls Wales "home" as she settles into a new life in Cardiff.

She has had various jobs and volunteers, helping other refugees.
