The humanitarian crisis in and around Syria is intensifying as more people are forced to flee their homes in the face of continuing violence. An International Rescue Committee (IRC) delegation visited Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, and Iraq in late November to discuss the humanitarian crisis with refugees, officials from host and donor governments, representatives of international humanitarian organizations and local nongovernmental agencies; and to get a firsthand look at the work of IRC partners and staff who are directly involved in providing assistance to the refugees and to Syrians trapped inside the country.
