The UN’s 2015 humanitarian appeal for Syrian refugees was just 61% funded by the end of the year.
Funding shortages mean that the most vulnerable Syrian refugees in Lebanon receive just $21.60 per person month or around US$0.70 cent a day for food assistance, well below the UN’s poverty line of US$1.90
86% of Syrian refugees in urban areas in Jordan are living below the local poverty line.
