Syrian Refugee Crisis
Daily horrors, devastation and upheavals at an unimaginable scale makes Syria the largest humanitarian emergency of our era.
In its fifth year of brutal and bitter war, Syria is in ruins. Its people are on the run from a nightmare that seems to have no end. Millions of internally displaced people (IDPs) are trapped inside Syria, experiencing dire conditions. Millions of other Syrian refugees have overwhelmed neighbouring countries including Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt—their numbers and needs intensify daily.
UNHCR is coordinating a massive refugee response throughout the region and leading efforts to protect and provide shelter for those displaced inside Syria—working across borders to provide critical aid under extremely dangerous circumstances.
