Five years after the onset of the crisis, people’s interest in the Syrian refugee crisis is decreasing. I am here to draw their attention back to people’s suffering,” said Nakazawa at the end of a week-long visit to Jordan. “I came to Jordan to meet with refugees and to see their situation with my own eyes. When I go back to my country, I want to tell Japanese people about the hardships the Syrians have been facing,” Nakazawa concluded. She hopes to raise awareness of refugees around the world back home in Japan after her tour.
