According to Qz.com, approximately 638 migrants died crossing the Mediterranean in August alone, and more than 3,600 worldwide this year, according to the International Organization for Migration. But, that's just this year. The numbers are way more alarming when you go back and look over the past few years.
There are thousands of migrants who have fled to countries and are looking for a place to settle. Hopefully, some of the neighboring countries in Europe will allow them entry. But this is not just a Syrian issue, this is a world issue. We'll see how the UN decide to address this in the coming weeks, now that this has made international headlines.
