Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and Syrian refugees currently reside in Jordan without legal status.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees are currently in Jordan. Almost all have fled ongoing violence and unrest in neighbouring Syria and Iraq. Many are poor, unable to legally obtain a job, and struggle to meet their daily needs. Women, in particular, are vulnerable to exploitation and violence. Repatriation remains dangerous due to continued insecurity in both Syria and Iraq. The International Rescue Committee is providing humanitarian assistance, medical care and other support to the refugees.
