SYRIA REFUGEE CRISIS INFOGRAPHIC: The Syria refugee crisis is the worst humanitarian disaster of this century, but no one is talking about it. Over 12 million people have been affected. Half of the population of Syria has left their homes.
More than 2 million refugees have now fled violence in Syria and are in desperate need of shelter, food and water. Over half of them are children. Three years on, the scale of the Syria crisis is still deepening, particularly as winter approaches, leaving relief agencies overstretched and struggling to cope with massive numbers of refugees. Oxfam is now helping half a million people affected by the Syria crisis across Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.
This map shows how many Syrian refugees have entered into surrounding countries. It is estimated that a total of 4.1 million people have died in the civil war in Syria. Almost 2 million people have fled to Turkey in search of safety.
