A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
Zaatari refugee camp
Oxfam Global Ambassador and Hollywood actor Gael García Bernal has taken time out from filming on location in Jordan to meet Syrian refugees.
Meet Liqaa' is a 23 year old refugee from Syria, now living in Za'atari refugee camp, in Jordan, and the face of the joint agency petition calling for Syria peace talks now.
Many Syrian refugees living outside camps across countries in the region are losing out on the help they desperately need, according to five international aid agencies today.

We travelled to Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan, and made a film about how some Syrian refugees are using music to cope with life in the camps.
