The world feels like it's coming to an end, with civil war from Syria. There's a prediction that in a few years there will be no people in Syria and it will become ghost country. At least four million Syrians are said to have been displaced within their own country. One in six people in Lebanon are now Syrian refugees. Did you know Western countries including the U.S and Britain may be asked to accept tens of thousands of refugees?

The biggest camp in Jordan is now the country's fourth-largest city. “Germany has already offered to take 5,000 Syrians, but other offers have been limited, “ Guterres said (a journalist). They are fleeing to other countries for safety and security. Some countries are not accepting Syria because they feel scared that they may hurt them or they ISSIS can pretend to be refugees.

Over 5,104 migrants are rescued in the waters around Chois in 2013. In 2012 there was 69 rescued is the waters around Chois. Greece and Italy surprised by the numbers of people trying to reach their shores and the costs of rescuing them. In New Zealand $81,000 are given to each family that comes as a refugee which means $483,000,000 are given to 700 families. A group of 12 people rescue migrants by rotating their shifts day and night.

Smugglers who take the migrants by a ferry prefer the route to Chios because it is one of the fastest between Turkey and the EU. They take migrants on ferries to earn money. In some places, the distance is as short as 5 miles (8 kilometers) and takes a half-hour in a small inflatable boat with a modest single engine. A way to earn money out of the migrants. What are your feelings about Syrians leaving their country? Please comment down below, I would love to hear you thoughts.
