'Searching for Syria' is a Partnership Between the UN and Google

While most people in the developed world have second homes online, millions of people from Syria currently find themselves with no homes at all, which is why the UN's refugee agency and Google have partnered to create the 'Searching for Syria' website. The interactive online domain offers a detailed, accurate accounting of the current and past goings on in Syria in light of the country's devastating six-year civil war, and it aims to help people distant from the crisis to understand what has happened and what life is like for the people there.

Searching for Syria uses UN data to address five questions: 'What was Syria like before the war?', 'What is going on in Syria?', 'What is a refugee?', 'Where are Syrian refugees going?', and 'How can I help Syrian refugees?' It also includes a page for donating to the UN Refugee Agency.
