As war rages in Syria, the stream of refugees into other countries shows no sign of stopping. More than 100,000 people fled Syria in August alone — about 40 percent of all who had left since the uprising against President Bashar Assad began last March.
The United Nations refugee agency said Thursday that the number of people escaping Syria could reach 700,000 by the end of the year.
And in each case, lives are uprooted and changed forever.
In the following videos, people who fled the conflict tell their stories.
