UNRWA Syria Crisis - 5 YearsHumanitarian Update: UNRWA IN SYRIA
Living in contested areas, facing high poverty rates and experiencing tenuous living conditions after fleeing to Lebanon and Jordan, the 560,000 Palestine refugees of Syria have suffered greatly in the crisis over the last five years. We remember the photos of the desperate flood of people fleeing Yarmouk refugee camp in 2014.

An estimated 95 percent of the Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA* in Syria remain inside the country; over two thirds (280,000 people) are internally displaced and some 95 percent (430,000) are in need of sustained humanitarian assistance.
