What are the challenges of living and working in Syria after more than two years of conflict? 

How are Palestine refugees affected? 

What is UNRWA (the UN Agency in charge of Palestine refugees) doing to continue its vital delivery of basic services and response to critical needs? 

As humanitarian conditions in Syria deteriorate, three Palestine refugee women, all key managers in this crisis response effort in the country, offer a direct perspective on the situation on the ground. 

The regional aspect of the conflict is also examined, focusing on its impact on Lebanon and Jordan.
