*Since the beginning of the war in Syria until now, 4.8 million people have left the country. Among those, more than 630,000 have sought refuge in Jordan. Through ‘Lifeline Jordan’, UNCHR sustains roughly 135,000 people, half of which are children, by providing each family with basic needs such as housing, food, medical care and education thanks to a contribution of approximately 1,500 euro a year. The availability of a minimum monthly income allows families to survive without spiraling into extreme poverty which could push them to consider risky decisions, such as crossing the Mediterranean.
