Across the burning sands: the plight of refugees and displaced persons

The story is heartbreaking. A four year old child crossing the desert alone, separated from his family due to unrest that forced them from their home.

Thankfully, Marwan was later able to reunite with his family. 

Unfortunately, for the more than 2 million refugees who have fled the three-year conflict in Syria, and for the billions of other refugees and displaced persons around the globe, reunification may only be a dream.
