This month officially marks five years since the start of the Syrian conflict. The war has killed 250,000 people and triggered the world’s largest refugee crisis. Half of Syrians are displaced, and around 450,000 of them have been granted asylum in Europe. Among them is a woman named Hanadi, who made her way to the Netherlands in 2014 after fleeing Damascus. In this film by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, we see how her life has changed and how she has acclimated to an entirely new country and language.
