I watch a video on refugees playing sport at a refugee camp and this is what I learnt.

More than 3.3 million people have been forced to leave their homes to escape the fighting in Iraq and nearly half of them are kids. They built a soccer pitch at a refugee’s camp to give the kids a happy, safe place to go where they could learn valuable skills, like how to work as a team and focus on their goals. Arsenal Ladies Captain Alex Scott’s came to teach the kids some skills. It was part of a soccer program set up by Arsenal and the charity, Save the Children. I understand why they built the soccer pitch for the kids and why Alex Scott wanted to help the children. Why is there so much fighting in Iraq to make people move to the refugee camps?
