Current Situation
2022

(UPDATE) The Syria crisis will marked its tenth anniversary in March 2021 and remains, by some distance, the largest refugee crisis in the world. Today, the five main refugee hosting countries – Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt – continue to generously host over 5.5 million refugees, while also contending with increasing needs among host communities and larger swathes of their population due to the multiple, overlapping crises.

KENAN
Syrian Refugee

Kenan arrived to Jordan in 2013 when he was 27 years old. His university study was interrupted because of war. Kenan’s family suffered from a very bad financial condition, the reason why he could not manage to join any university in Jordan. He received the DAFI scholarship in 2017 and started his journey in Media. Today, he is about to graduate and trying to find a good opportunity for a Masters scholarship to finish his higher studies.

Kenan: “I would like to thank donors who support refugee education. Reviving hope in a person’s soul to pursue their passion is a great thing Creativity creates from the womb of suffering, so I hope you will continue to support students to be able in the future to rebuild their homelands.

I wish to become a lecturer in the university to teach students. It is best for you to learn and benefit people what you learn. I cannot imagine my life without the scholarship, but it would have been very difficult.”

Khaled, Leen, and their children
Palestinian refugee from Syria / Syrian refugees

When Khaled, a Palestinian refugee from Syria, fled with his wife Leen and family from Syria to Jordan in 2013, he was forced to leave his home, his friends, and life as he knew it behind.

Like many other PRS, Khaled fled to Jordan with no savings; he had only 200 JOD (282.09 US$) to start a new life. The family lost their home in Syria after it was demolished by an airstrike.

After settling down in Jordan, Khaled tried obtaining birth certificates for his children. His attempt failed, as they confirmed that such documents must be issued in Syria and not in Jordan. Frustration prevailed over the family. As days passed, Khaled’s children were growing up without any documents and therefore were not able to enroll in school. Thanks to support from UNRWA, the family finally received the much needed birth certificates.

“I am feeling so happy that I’m finally enrolled in school and able to learn. I want to be a policeman in the future to support people in need,” said Khaled’s son Ali (9) happily.

Syrian Refugee

Displaced refugees from Syria living in flimsy tents at high altitudes have been struggling to cope – and even survive – as winter brings unrelenting freezing winds, heavy rains, and snow to Lebanon. The situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon has been deteriorating for years, but this year’s findings are a dramatic indication of how difficult it has become for them to make it through another day. Nine out of 10 Syrian refugee families in Lebanon are living in extreme poverty.

ALI
Syrian Refugee

Ali, an elderly Syrian refugee, had to flee Syria 10 years ago with his wife. He is struggling to move economically forward. Winter and COVID-19 don’t make it easy for him and his family.
