A Brutal and Unsparing Conflict
The civil war in Syria has spared no one. Killing and injuring hundreds of thousands, and displacing 12 million people, many of whom now exist as refugees in unstable conditions throughout the Middle East.
Since 2011, the majority of those forced to flee the fighting in Syria are those least able to deal with the impact of conflict – women, children and the elderly. Either trapped in overcrowded refugee camps, or leading semi-destitute lives in the cities of Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, their situations continue to be desperate.
