Description : War and harsh living conditions in Syria are driving thousands of families into neighbouring countries. Around 2,000 people who had previously settled in the Al-Qaim camp are sheltering in the Al-Obeidi refugee camp in the Anbar governorate of western Iraq, just 30 km from the Syrian border. Many refugees have relatives back in Syria or elsewhere.
