Refugees of the Syrian civil war say their new life has many burdens, but they hope that education for their children will ensure a brighter future. (..)U.N. World Food Program spokesperson Steve Taravella told CNA that the program had managed to avoid cuts in Jordan and Lebanon, though funding in December faces “dire” shortfalls. The program also cuts refugees if they no longer meet needs-criteria. The cost of living is posing a major problem for refugees such as el Kourdi and Latifah. The influx of refugees has tripled, quadrupled or quintupled the price of rent, affecting both refugees and Jordanian citizens.
