Struggling to Survive: Refugees from Syria in Turkey

19/11/2014 – In just over three years, over 3.2 million women, men and children have fled violence, persecution and other intolerable hardships in Syria for the hope of safety and security outside of the country. Neighbouring states have disproportionately shouldered the responsibility to receive Syrian refugees. As of October 2014, Lebanon has 1.13 million registered Syrian refugees, Jordan is hosting 619,000 Syrian persons of concern, while at least 1.6 million refugees from Syria reside in Turkey.
