160 000 Syrians living in the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan. A picture giving an idea of the scale of the problem caused by the war in Syria. In all more than 1.5 million people have fled to neighbouring countries or further afield since it started and approximately half of these are registered as refugees. The United Nations High commissioner for refugee’s estimates of the size of the problem just continue to rise month after month. In addition the United Nations estimates there are over 4 million displaced civilians remaining within Syria.
