This is a 5 minute preview of a Newsround Special that was transmitted in the UK by the BBC.
We travelled to the Zaatari UNHCR refugee camp that sits on the border of Jordan and Syria and is home to hundreds of thousands of displaced Syrians. Half of them are children. We spend a week talking with families who had fled the civil war, leaving behind homes, jobs and possessions because it has become too dangerous.
Newsround is a news programme aimed at children aged 7-12 and has been on air in the UK since the early 1970's.
