Shelter and WASH

In 2020, UNICEF estimated that 91% of Syrian refugee families live below the poverty line, 88% of whom are below the extreme poverty line. This, in turn, contributes to families' preoccupation with finding other income alternatives such as sending their children to work. In June 2021, 49% of Syrian refugee families were food insecure. Thus, two-thirds of these families had to reduce the size of food portions or the number of meals they consumed daily. In addition to this, according to the UNHCR (2021) report, 60% of Syrian refugee families live in vulnerable or substandard housing.
