If the different aspects of the Syrian Civil war are inspected then the disastrous effects of war on humans could be fully understood. The Syrian Civil war has made millions of people homeless. These homeless people have left their own country and many of them have moved to the refugee camps in Jordan. Jordan has long been the shelter for refugees from different countries like Palestinians, Iraqis and the Lebanese. At present the Syrian refugees constitute 10% of this small sized country’s population. Jordan spends $250 million on the refugees from different countries. The Information minister of Jordan, Mohammad Momani, said that the help they are offering to the refugees is for the good of the entire world and other countries must come forward to help the cause. Life for the Syrian refugees in Jordan is miserable. They cannot get employment legally and the ones who get jobs illegally are underpaid.
The UN food vouchers cover only specific food or grocery items but there are many other daily necessities that stay uncovered. Most of the Syrian refugees have not qualified for the cash relief given by United Nations. Their presence in Jordan has made it difficult for the natives to earn their wages and increased the monthly rents around the country. The refugees are not just jobless but they are also losing hope of a better life. A huge number of refugee children have not been able to get any formal education for over 2 years. Without proper schooling their future looks really bleak. Many teenagers and college students who have been at the brink of completing their degrees have lost their chance of a respectful life.
Starvation until submission is the new policy taken by the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The forced armies are strictly guarding the besieged areas so that food and medicines cannot pass inside. The blockade is literally making the people in the besieged areas starve. The UN aids cannot reach people who fall in the blockade zones. The towns under siege have no pita bread. People who still have got money are buying medicine and flour from smugglers but they do not know how long they will be able to do this.
