As the crisis in Syria continues to escalate, the International Rescue Committee is expanding our assistance to Syrian refugees in neighboring Jordan to provide specialized care and support for women. A new project will directly benefit some 6,000 Syrian women and girls, and is designed to raise awareness of gender-specific issues among the urban communities which are currently home to close to 80% of Syrian refugees here.
