Imagine you have 10 minutes to pack your bags and flee

What would you bring?

Over 4 million* Syrian refugees, half of them children, do not need to imagine.


How you can help

Take the #WWYB Challenge

As the weather gets colder, put yourself in a refugee's shoes. You made the painful decision that your family is safer if you flee your home than if you stay. You’ve got 10 minutes to pack your bag and leave everything else behind…GO!.

Share your photos and videos - #WWYB #PTW

What did you bring? How did you feel imagining that you were leaving your home...forever. Share with us your experience and open a dialogue with your family and friends.
