Syrians struggle to adapt to life abroad

The UN claims the number of Syrian refugees has now reached three million, with many fleeing through unofficial means.

    As many other Syrian refugees who are struggling to adapt to their new lives , AbdulHakim faces difficulties in adjusting to his new home in Sydney.

    Before the Arab spring, Al Jabouri had a shop in Syria, but eventually joined the resistance and was arrested. As soon as he was freed from prison, he applied for assylum in Australia.

    Australia is expected to re-settle nearly 4,000 refugees from Iraq and Syria.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Western Sydney.
