DIRE CONSEQUENCES: 12 YEARS OF SUFFERING IN SYRIA
Humanitarian needs are currently at their highest in Syria and neighbouring host countries, as Syrian families, girls and boys continue to bear the brunt of conflict, violence and displacement, 12 years on. Syria is the world’s largest displacement crisis with more than 13 million people having either fled the country or been displaced within its borders since 2011. With 6.9 million IDPs, Syria is also the country with the most internally displaced people. The humanitarian situation in neighbouring host countries also remains critical. Türkiye hosts the largest refugee population in the world, which includes over 3.7 million Syrians. Lebanon and Jordan are also among the countries with the highest number of refugees per capita globally, including millions of vulnerable Syrian women, men and children residing in refugee camps, informal settlements and host communities.
