On World Refugee Day in 2018, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported that over 65 million refugees were forcibly displaced from their homes across the world due to war, violence, and persecution.

Syrians continue to be the largest displaced population across the world with over 12 million refugees in 2016.  In Jordan, over 660,000 Syrian refugees are trapped in exile. According to USA for UNHCR, approximately 80% of Syrian refugees live outside camps, while more than 140,000 found safety at the Za’atari and Azraq refugee camps.
