»Humanitarian Crises in Syria


Syria is a country in the Middle East, along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It has a population of roughly 22 million.  Syria is very diverse, ethnically and religiously, but most Syrians are ethnic Arab and follow the Sunni branch of Islam. Syria is in the middle of an extremely violent civil war. In April 2011, protests inspired by earlier revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia rose up to challenge the country's government. Fighting between government forces and rebels has killed more 100,000 people and created more than 2 million refugees, half of them children. (Washington Post, UN Refugees)
