Nearly killed in Sierra Leone, this refugee has found more than a home in Worcester, Mass.

When Augustine Kanjia came to Worcester, Massachusetts, he'd been nearly killed by rebels, threatened by the Gambian government and forced to come to the US with little more than what he could carry. But what he found in the New England city was a warm welcome — that's made him truly believe Worcester is his forever home.

Inside Syria, almost six million children have been affected by the country's ongoing civil war, and millions more have fled the country to find safety in refugee camps. Turkey, for example, has opened its doors to about a million-and-a-half Syrian refugees since spring 2011. But as the war drags on, Turkey is finding itself with a long-term humanitarian and education problem.
