Oxfam: Syrian refugee crisis



Oxfam and our partners are responding to the emergency in Jordan and Lebanon. Our work includes: distributing blankets, hygiene kits, fuel, and stoves, and providing information about how to access basic services. We are also providing necessities for the cold weather: warm clothes, mattresses, heaters, rugs, and plastic sheeting. In Jordan,we are installing sanitation facilities and participating in the construction of a new water system to provide the camp with clean drinking water.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Nearly two years after the uprising of 2011, armed conflict rages on in Syria, and the numbers of those severely affected are boggling. Four million people inside Syria are in need of humanitarian assistance, and nearly one million have fled the country, taking refuge in neighboring Egypt, Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan. More than 5,000 people are still flowing across the borders each day.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will help us to continue and expand our work. In Lebanon, we are assisting both Palestinians and Syrians who have fled Syria by providing refugees with hygiiene kits, fuel, stoves, and necessities to survice the cold. In Jordan, we are installing sanitation facilities including toilets, showers, and laundry areas to serve more than 9,500 people in Zaatari camp, and we will participate in construction of a new water system that will provide clean drinking water

Potential Long Term Impact

Our work aims not only to help people survive this time of crisis, but also to ensure that once they leave the refugee camps, they access to information and basic necessities to survive. Additionally, we are set to launch assessments to see how we can best support refugees who are living in nearby host communities.
