The Syrian crisis has become the worst humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century so far. More than 150,000 people have died, 6.5 million are internally displaced, and nearly three million people have been forced to leave for neighboring countries. In Jordan, at least 600,000 Syrian refugees have been registered -- the actual number may be considerably higher. Some 110,000 of them are in refugee camps. Irbid, at the Syrian border, is home to 20% of Syrian refugees -- and that's where we have launched our programs focused on food security, access to safe water, livelihoods, and psychological support.
