A panoramic composite image of the home of Muna, a Syrian refugee who fled Syria in July 2012 and is now living in Mafraq in neighbouring Jordan with her three children. Since the crisis in Syria began in early 2011, over 1.6 million people have fled to neighbouring countries. Around two thirds of the Syrian refugees in Jordan live in cities and towns rather than camps. These 'urban refugees' are typically crowded into small rented rooms and struggle to afford food, clothing and other basics. Some children have been sent to work to help their families financially, while other families have tried to reduce expenses by finding early marriages for their daughters.
