For the past few years we’ve been following the life of a Syrian refugee, Rouaa, who’s now 9 years old.

She was born in the year the Syrian conflict started – a civil war that’s led to the world’s biggest refugee crisis.

Rouaa is one of 5 million Syrians who’ve fled their native land. The UN says only a tiny fraction of those who need new homes will ever get the chance to be resettled. But Rouaa and her family have defied the odds.
