Syrian Refuges

By Abdirahman Bidhan Dahir

There is already technicians, doctors and dentists from Syria working and residing big cities and towns in Somaliland. In the spirit of the brotherhood. Somaliland Government and people should encourage Syrian refugee  to come and live in Somaliland  without any restriction and build up their lives in  Somaliland, also we need people with skills and talent to develop the country ,they can come Via Beirut or Amman ofcourse with the Ethiopian Airlines . The UN’s refugee agency has said that more than 1.5 million people have fled the conflict in Syria.

Most have fled to Jordan and Lebanon, but not have all been registered yet, meaning the true total is likely to be far higher, according to the UNHCR. The situation inside Syria has deteriorated dramatically over the past four months, according to the agency.

The UN estimates that 80,000 people have died in the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.It says some 4.25 million have been displaced within the country.

“Refugees tell us the increased fighting and changing of control of towns and villages, in particular in conflict areas, results in more and more civilians deciding to leave,” UNHCR said in a statement.

The UNHCR says it has registered a million refugees since the beginning of this year alone, and that “the widening gap between the needs and resources available is a growing challenge”.

Early next month, UNHCR and non-governmental organisations are due to launch a “revised funding appeal” for the Syrian crisis.

Last month, children’s charity Unicef said it would have to scale back “life-saving” support in Jordan’s Zaatari camp if more money was not forthcoming.
