Life living in a poverty camp

Poverty is a reality for many individuals and families. But unless you’ve experienced poverty, it’s hard to truly understand that more than 5.6 million people have fled Syria since 2011, seeking safety in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, and elsewhere.
Millions more are displaced inside Syria, and hope is fading fast as the war continues.

UNHCR works to help, leading a coordinated effort across the region. Together with our partners, NGOs, and host governments, we are providing a lifeline to those in need.
