A Life on Hold


A Life on Hold

Hany had everything to look forward to. Then the war in Syria came to his doorstep.
14 March 2014
Leaving university early has been harder on Hany than fleeing his home.

Hany was a gifted young poet, rapper and student in Homs, Syria. But when the war broke out, his family fled the violence and sought refuge in Lebanon.

Now 20, Hany spends his days watching the clock, far from his friends and uncertain about what his future holds. In this video, he reflects on his experience as a refugee and sends an important message to the world.
