Syrian mother: "Where do we go?"

Matthew Price has been speaking to a Syrian family from Homs who have made a four-year journey to a camp in Hungary.

"Where do we go,” asked Hamza, an English teacher and mother-of-three.

She fled from Homs with her engineer husband, two daughters of 14 and 18, and 8-year-old son.

Hamza described spending a year-and-a-half in Damascus before moving on to Lebanon and Turkey, where she said the people "hate Syrians".

A month ago the family travelled to Greece in a rubber dinghy, and have since journeyed through Macedonia and into Hungary.

“All the governments make this war on Syria," said Hamza. "They put their hands in everything, even in the war, and now they have prevented us from going to their countries.

Asked if she thought her family would make it to Germany, Hamza was adamant: “Yes I will make it; I will try and try and try.”
