A Picture’s Worth…

The attached photo captures the scale of the Syrian displacement of persons to Jordan. There are four main camps in Jordan; together they comprise 20% of the displaced population which has relocated to the country.

This is a single camp, and represents a fraction of the .6 million people who are cobbling together new lives in the absence of true opportunity.

2 million more people have fled to Turkey, and an additional 1m to Lebanon.
