A Perth-based Red Cross nurse says that five years into the war in Syria, the situation for millions of displaced people there seems “hopeless”.
Cathy Fry has worked with medical teams on missions to Afghanistan, Darfur, Pakistan, Haiti and Georgia since 2003.
In April this year she travelled to Jordan to work with a team assisting Syrians in the Bern — a narrow strip of no-man’s land on the Syrian border.
“When I arrived at the beginning of April there were around 40,000 people there, and within four weeks there was twice that number,” Ms Fry told 720 ABC Perth.
