Nine years into the Syria crisis, more than 5 million Syrian refugees are still displaced into Jordan and other neighboring countries. Since 2011, Jordan alone has provided refuge to more than 1.3 million Syrians, including 671,148 registered refugees, who face increasing vulnerability as their savings, assets and resources are long exhausted. Around 126,000 of these refugees live in camps, while the remaining have settled in urban and rural areas, primarily in northern governorates and in Amman.
