A Sacramento native who was once a refugee is bringing her experiences in Aleppo to life using art.
As a ceasefire in Syria continues to be negotiated, there are still thousands of refugees across the country in dire straits.
Safa Faki was among them a few years ago.
Every Friday, she led a group coloring activity as a form of creative release for the hundreds of children in her refugee camp. She now lives in Sacramento with her husband Rob Asher, a documentary filmmaker.
The couple joins us on Insight to discuss their experience inside Aleppo and reflect on the ongoing peace negotiations.
Faki has launched a GoFundMe to return to a displacement camp in Syria to lead drawing sessions for children in those camps.
