Chicago doctors helping Syrian refugees in Jordan

Chicago physicians Aisha Sethi, Jihad Shoshara and Sofia Shoshara were recently in Jordan. They were there to give aid and comfort to Syrian refugees throughout the country, including the UNHCR camp in Al Zaatari. Their work was part of a mission trip on behalf of the Syrian American Medical Society. They’ll tell us about life and the challenges of Syrian refugees in Jordan and they’ll also give their personal opinions on the current political climate in the U.S. towards refugees and migrants.
