I’m not the kind of person who usually remembers my dreams, but last night was different. I dreamt I had immigrated to Belgium and was sitting with a friend in a large, crowded refugee camp.

A job that pays enough to live on and help support a family is prized more than anything else in Gaza, and no wonder. The unemployment rate currently hovers at 49 per cent overall and reaches 65 per cent among youth and young adults (15-29)—and 85 per cent among women.

The Assad government’s rapid advance through southwest Syria since June 19 displaced 330,000 Syrians in one of the largest and fastest displacements since the beginning of the seven-and-a-half-year war.
