Syria Stories - A mobile snap series

Syria Stories was one of several initiatives to get people involved in the annual fundraising event “TV-aksjonen.” All together 220 million Norwegian kroners were donated. Sms-donations were record high and 100 000 people got involved around the country.

There’s no lack of images and videos from Syria, but it all seems so far away. 
We decided to give people a first hand’s experience of how it is to live in a war zone. ​​​​​​​

Syria Stories is a mobile snap-series from within the war zone in Syria. Filmed by people on the inside, we meet families that lack food, water and medicines. Built as a Snapchat experience you can navigate through the stories with your thumb. And most importantly - you can use it to donate to the Red Cross.
