A video that has gone viral shows, in second a day shots, how a civil war like Syria’s would affect a British girl over the course of a year. The video, created by international NGO Save the Children, was released as the Middle Eastern country marks its third year embroiled in a conflict that has killed thousands of children and forced millions to seek refuge away from home.
