Syria emergency update: An infographic that speaks volumes

The number of people leaving Syria to seek refuge in neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan, and the number being displaced with Syria itself, is increasing everyday.  We've put together this infographic to help sum up the situation. The numbers are really quite staggering. 

I think the infographic pretty much speaks for itself.  Putting the numbers into a UK context goes some way to helping us comprehend the scale of the crisis and the upheaval it has caused. Oxfam's staff are on the ground in Lebanon and Jordan, helping refugees desperately in need of emergency assistance.

Thank you to everyone that has supported our Syria Crisis Appeal.  If you haven't done so yet, please donate today
