Erbil, Iraq

Khaled Hosseini, Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, stands in the doorway of the PARC (Protection Assistance Reintegration Center) office in Erbil. More than half of the 218,000 plus Syrians registered with UNHCR in the Kurdistan Region live in the local community, outside of refugee camps. 15 March 2014 marked the third anniversary of the Syrian crisis and as that country's civil war rages on into its 4th year Syrians will soon replace Afghans as the world's largest refugee population. In recognition of this tragic milestone, best-selling author, former refugee and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Khaled Hosseini, recently travelled with the UNHCR in the Kurdish region of Iraq meeting some of the 2.5 million plus Syrian refugees whose lives and families have been torn apart by the ongoing conflict.
