The crisis in Syria has resulted in the displacement of thousands of civilians to neighbouring countries (over 250’000 total in the region). Over 75 % of these refugees are women and children under 18. Refugee influx represents a burden on host communities who have growing difficulties in coping with assisting displaced Syrian refugees.


The capacity of UNHCR and its implementing partners is strenghtened to meet emergency and prolonged displacement needs of Syrian refugees as well as hosting populations.


  • Syrian refugees (in particular women and children) in Lebanon and Jordan who are sheltered in camp and non-camp settings.
