In a Refugee Camp

Reggie Yates visits the Middle East to spend a week living and sleeping in the largest refugee camp in Iraq alongside 30,000 Syrian refugees. Since the war in Syria first began, nearly 11 million people have fled their homes in search of safety. The news has been dominated by those trying to cross into Europe, but some five million people ended up in refugee camps.

But what is it really like to be a 21st-century refugee? And what is it like to plan for your future when you can't go home and you can't move on?
