Abstract

Whether in camps or in urban areas, Syrian refugees in the region are steadily losing hope and becoming more desperate each day. Access to food, shelter, education, healthcare, and livelihoods are unreliable and uncertain. Abject poverty is becoming the norm, and refugees are becoming prisoners of their own fate. What we need is for refugees to be able to live and work in a decent environment. Children need to go to school. We need hope and a plan for the future. Syrian refugees need to be able to realize their human rights.
