SYRIA REFUGEE CRISIS INFOGRAPHIC: The Syria refugee crisis is the worst humanitarian disaster of this century, but no one is talking about it. Over 12 million people have been affected. Half of the population of Syria has left their homes.
In March 2011, thousands of Syrians took to the streets to protest against the regime of President Bashar Assad. More than to years later, the country has descended into civil war, leaving at least 100,000 people dead and forcing more than 2 million to flee their homeland.
More than 2 million refugees have now fled violence in Syria and are in desperate need of shelter, food and water. Over half of them are children. Three years on, the scale of the Syria crisis is still deepening, particularly as winter approaches, leaving relief agencies overstretched and struggling to cope with massive numbers of refugees. Oxfam is now helping half a million people affected by the Syria crisis across Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.
