At last year's ESCRS, I had the pleasure of watching Soroosh Behshad and Natalie Weil give a talk on the unique challenges of providing eye care in a refugee camp. The camp in question was Zaatari, the world’s largest Syrian refugee camp, housing more than 80,000 people. COVID-19 travel restrictions have meant that Behshad and Weil were unable to travel to Zaatari this year, leaving countless children without care. Read “The Forgotten Crisis” to find out more about their work and the need for local sustainable healthcare programs.

Until next time, Aleksandra Jones, Editor.
