Refugees have crossed the border into Tunisia to escape the ongoing violence in Libya.

Since violence erupted in Libya, neighboring Tunisia has seen an influx of people cross the border. Camps have sprouted up along the border to help the refugees, mostly foreign workers from Africa and South Asia.

Chicago area nurse Donna Demir recently returned from a camp run by the Zakat Foundation, a relief group based in the Southwest suburbs.

She came to our studios recently to tell us about her experience.
