Jose Mujica, Uruguay’s Humble Ex-President, Offers To House 100 Syrian Refugee Children

posted on: Sep 9, 2015

Since the Syrian conflict began in 2011, over 2 million Syrians have been displaced from their homes and forced to migrate to other areas.

Most refugees fled to Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon. Others flocked to cities like Germany and Hungary, hoping to find a safe haven and a new lease on life.

In response to the Syrian crisis, an outpouring of aid has been offered by many nations. Germany, for example, offered so much aid to migrating Syrians, the police became “overwhelmed” and asked them to kindly desist.
