These problems were caused by the difficulties of blending with a new culture that had different values and traditions from their original culture in Syria, especially that majority of students witnessed bombing, destruction, and displacement in their cities and villages, which led the experts in Orient for Human Relief to keep a track of these cases and evaluate them.
