Winter hits refugees from the Syria Crisis again - photos from Zaatari

More than 2.3 million people have fled the violence in Syria, for neighboring countries.

These photos from Zaatari refugee camp, in Jordan, which holds more than 100,000 Syrian refugees, show how some people have been coping with camp life.

Oxfam has launched a major appeal to help families affected by the Syria Crisis get through the harsh winter months – and beyond.

We will be helping refugees living in the tented settlements through the distribution of blankets and plastic sheeting to help protect the tents better from the rain and snow.
