The conflict in Syria has internally displaced 4.25 million Syrians and 1.9 million refugees have fled to neighbouring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon. This is the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world; a crisis that currently threatens to outstrip its humanitarian response.

Oxfam’s schools resources outline the impact of the crisis on refugee children in Lebanon and Jordan, and suggest how young people in the UK can effectively respond.
