24 February 2014 - This month, Syria is at the forefront of our newsletter. Sweden stands out as the most welcoming of the European countries – who, so far, have received only 0.5% of the total of Syrian refugees.

However, Syria‘s neighbouring countries have hosted refugees  equivalent to 20% of their own population – comparable to the UK receiving over 10 million refugees.

We also take a look at the Nordic countries and their leading role in the elimination of Syrian chemical weapons, and we have interviewed Rasmus Egendal of WFP who tells us about the difficult task of feeding the Syrian population.

“Television helps bring the world to people’s lives and living rooms. Through quality programming, television sheds light on global issues and opens windows of understanding on the struggles and hopes of communities and families everywhere. The United Nations looks forward to continuing our work with broadcasters to help inform, educate and build a better world.” - Ban Ki-moon is the Secretary-General of the United Nations
