A pledging conference for Syria took place on Wednesday 30 January in Kuwait City to raise much needed funds to help those affected by the conflict there.

More than 700,000 people have fled Syria seeking safety in neighbouring countries and beyond, and the number is rising by the day.

An internally displaced (IDP) woman described life as a refugee: "Imagine if you have perfect eyesight and suddenly you are blinded."

In this video, some of those who have fled tell their story.
