The Prince of Wales has called on the world to remember those ‘standing up for freedom and human rights’ in places like Syria and Afghanistan.

In a New Year message released on the first day of 2022, Charles also paid tribute to the ‘brave individuals, local communities and international organisations’ who are ‘responding to great needs by providing vital assistance’.

The heir to the throne recently visited Jordan and learnt first hand how the Middle East country has for decades been a haven for people fleeing conflict in the region including Syria.
