In their eyes: Life in a Kurdish refugee camp

This is a video about a camp for Internally Displaced Peoples on the border of Iraq and Iran, as seen through the eyes of the Kurdish children who live there.

All the drawings, photography, and singing are by the young residents of the Zharawa camp in the Sulaimaniyah district of Iraqi Kurdistan. Production by Tracy Fuad.
