Our team encountered a unique charity, “Souriyat Across Borders,” while interviewing Syrian refugees in Amman, Jordan. Created by five women, “Souriyat Across Borders” provides rehabilitation for Syrian war wounded, along with vital education programs for vulnerable refugees seeking asylum in Jordan. The Carbon Trace team, led by director Taye Abithi Taye, returned twice to Jordan in 2017 filming with The Syrian-American Medical Society as they conducted medical missions in the region–from Amman to Mafraq, within eyesight of the Syrian border.
