Syria's worsening humanitarian crisis

Syria's humanitarian crisis is dramatically deteriorating. The UN estimates 2.5 million people displaced by conflict inside the country need help, while there are now more than 800,000 refugees who've fled to neighbouring countries, including Jordan - with record numbers arriving in January. Oxfam is among the many agencies responding to urgent needs inside Zaatari camp, which houses more than 90,000 refugees.
