The Syrian conflict, now in its sixth year,  has generated the largest displacement crisis globally.

Countries in the Middle East and North Africa are hosting nearly five million people who have fled the violence and insecurity.

The UN Secretary-General and the President of the World Bank were in the region to show their support and appreciation for these nations, but also to highlight the tremendous need.

Dianne Penn reports on their visit on Sunday to the Zaatari camp in Jordan, home to nearly 80,000 Syrian refugees.
