Artists raise money for Syria

Art exhibition in France has raised thousands of dollars to help people suffering in Syria's conflict.

    Artists from Morocco to Oman have gathered their work together for an exhibition in Paris, aimed at raising money for those suffering in Syria's conflict.

    The exhibition showcases the work of young artists inspired by the political and social changes in their region.

    Cash from the sale of the art, already thousands of dollars, will provide practical help, mainly in the area of healthcare, on the ground in Syria.
