"Mi Casa Es Tu Casa" a new street art mural by Ruben Sanchez for AptART in Za'atari, the world’s second-largest refugee camp.

Ruben Sanchez is currently in Jordan where he just finished working on this new piece in Za’atari, the world’s second-largest refugee camp.
For nearly three bloody years, the civil war in Syria has caused violence on a horrific scale. Roughly 120,000 were killed before the U.N. stopped counting, nearly 5 million have been internally displaced, and since it opened in July 2012, more than 120,000 Syrians have found refuge in Za’atari, Jordan.
