The world risks failing the people of Syria as the scale of suffering increases and the humanitarian fall-out from the crisis worsens by the day.
Adapting to life in Jordan’s sprawling desert refugee camp, Zaatari, is hard for all the Syrian refugees, but especially so for those with disabilities and special needs.

Reaction to donor pledges for Syria humanitarian crisis
UN appeal needs urgent funds to stem spiralling crisis.
In the largest refugee crisis since World War II, Syria's women, children and men continue to bear the brunt of a conflict marked by enormous human suffering, relentless destruction and a blatant disregard for human rights.
At least 400,000 Syrians have been killed and over 13 million are in desperate need of humanitarian aid. More than half of the population – nearly 12 million people – have fled from their homes, many of them several times. More than 5.6 million refugees are living in neighbouring countries, the majority in dire poverty.
In Lebanon and Jordan, Oxfam is helping families get essential supplies, while protecting public health with clean water and safe sanitation. In war-torn Syria, we are supporting repairs to damaged water networks and helping keep clean water flowing to hundreds of thousands of people. Over the past year, we estimate we have reached more than two million people.
