The visit was organised by Open Doors, an international Christian persecution charity.

While out there Frank visited an infant school where most of the equipment was provided by the charity.

Food parcels were also handed out, containing £71 worth of food per family, per month. In refugee camps Frank visited, families live in temporary buildings, most of which had just one room to live and sleep in.

Mr Wood told the Herald: “It was an eye-opener and it took me a couple of days when I got home to get my head around some of what I saw.”

The illustrated talk will be held at Alcester Town Hall on Friday, 29th January, from 7.30pm.

Also speaking will be Stratford MP Nadhim Zahawi, who will be making a welcome second visit to a Refugee Fund meeting.

As David Cameron’s Special Emissary to the Middle East, he will share details of his recent visits and his hopes for the future for Iraq, Syria and the refugees. Entry is free with a collection at the end for the fund itself.

Light refreshments will be served following the presentations.
