Humanitarian Crisis in Syria
The still-going timeline of the Syrian conflict as taken several peaks of death and destruction. Since the conflict began in March 2011, millions of civilians have been forced to flee their lands in search for peace. The Syrian refugee crisis was dubbed as the ‘worst refugee crisis in the history of the world’.
The backdrop of Syria’s humanitarian crisis was not set in the years when the conflict began, but it had started in 2006 when Syria experienced the worst drought in the recent history of the country. The drought continued for five years, pushing hundreds of thousands of farmers into the well of poverty. A mass of rural people migrated to the urban areas. Amid the environmental crisis, the conflicts impacted Syrian communities in the worst way in modern history.
The crumbling infrastructure of food and agricultural sector in Syria has worsened the living conditions of people living near the poverty line. An estimated 58% of the families living in besieged areas are living in extreme poverty. 76% of refugee households and IDPs are living below $3.84 income per day which is rising continuously. At such a low income rate, it is virtually impossible to fulfil the daily food and other necessities of life.
The Vulnerability Assessment of Syrian Refugees (VASyR) revealed that food insecurity is still a prime concern for the Syrian refugees. A large portion of the population is malnourished. Children and pregnant women are among the most affected group. International funding is still insufficient to meet the growing needs.
