-  70% of Syrian refugees live outside of refugee camps
-   Percentage of refugees in non-camp settings: 
                  -  Lebanon: 100%
                  - Jordan: 80%
                  - Iraq: 50%
                  - Turkey: 30%
-    Most refugees are unable to legally work 

-   They struggle to buy food, water, fuel, and clothing 

-  They can rarely find or afford a place to live

-  They need cash assistance and better shelter, healthcare and education programs
Aid must be scaled up for urban refugees to help them survive outside of camps.
