Since 2011, civil war and conflict between the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Syrian opposition forces, and ISIS, have resulted in more than 200,000 deaths. In refugee camps, the people face over crowding and struggling to give the Syrians what they need, like food, shelter, and clothes. Because of overcrowding, they also face things like disease and common fights. While there are some countries willing to let them in, others are not so giving. To get out of the country they may have to go through things like smuggling and human trafficking. Not only is this unsafe because they can get caught, they are also being transported in unsafe cars and ships.
5.1 million people have fled Syria's civil war as refugees, straining the region's ability to cope and to care for the needs of displaced children. The Syrian civil war began on March 15th, 2011, when peaceful protesters took over the streets of Syria. The military soon took over the fight, causing issues and making the country into a fragile state. Because of the war, Syrians are fleeing to refugee camps. Here they often experience things like disease, child marriage and abuse, and a lack of education for children. Many of these refugees are seeking help in places like Turkey and Lebanon. In these new places, they are accepted because they need help, but not always treated fairly.
