In war torn Syria, a school becomes home, as families who've fled from violence try to find shelter and comfort. Here in southern Damascus, they hang out in hallways. A classroom becomes a bedroom for a family of eight. Emad Fallahah owned a supermarket in Aleppo. His store was destroyed. One son was injured. His 12-year-old boy was killed. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) ALEPPO SHOPKEEPER, EMAD FALLAHAH SAYING: "All of this is not important. We just want to see the country as it was again. When I remember my little child I cannot stop my tears." Syria's health minister visited the school Thursday as refugees collected food donations. The two-year conflict has displaced an estimated two million people inside Syria, and more than 700-thousand have fled to neighboring countries. The U.N. estimates that four million need humanitarian assistance. For now, they're seeking safety in schools and hospitals and taking comfort wherever they can find it.
