أزمة اللاجئين السوريين تدخل عامها التاسع

Graphic News

March 15, 2019 -- More than 5.6 million of Syria’s population are seeking refuge abroad, while another 5.7 million remain internally displaced from their homes, as the Syrian civil war enters its ninth year.

In total, some 11.3 million Syrian people are in need of aid – more than half of the pre-conflict population of 22 million.

Turkey hosts the largest number of registered Syrian refugees – currently 3.6 million.

The vast majority of Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries are believed to live in urban areas, with only seven per cent accommodated in refugee camps, according to UNHCR.

Of Syria’s 5.6 million registered refugees, more than 2.5 million are children.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
