How are refugees treated in the camps?
Refugees are not allowed to have jobs. Tho some refugees do work illegally, the countries do not allow them to work. Economic and Social Council member Maisoon al-Amarneh says, "Refugees should not work. International organizations provide them with everything – a place to stay, food, health. Why do they need to work?"
Children in refugee camps are not being educated. Due to the lack of quality teachers, facilities, and funding, schooling just isn't an option in refugee camps.
Around 2 million refugees have fled to Syria in the past 2 years. 75% of these refugees are women and children.
The countries with the camps were facing problems before the refugees arrived and now face more. For example, Jordan had a major water problem last year. With the numbers of refugees adding up, so did the length of lines to fill water bottles.
Refugees have a controlled daily routine. They are not allowed to leave the gates and fences holding them in unless given permission. Once they are given permission to leave they cannot return. Many refugees cannot stand these conditions and request to leave and return to Syria despite the risks.
Some camps are better than others. One of the better camps has money for food and satellite dishes. The not so good camps have little food available and no luxuries for the refugees.
There are currently no hospitals located inside Syrian refugee camps. The Red Cross is planing on building hospitals around the Syrian boarder. These hospitals will hold up to 130,000 refugees and provide much needed medical help.
Some people say that refugee camps are like concentration camps and Syrian refugees are the Jews. In Lebanon, many have taken it upon themselves to attack Syrians, most of which were refugees.
A Syrian refugee camp costs, on average, $500,000 per day. Some of the biggest costs are from bringing in water/food for the refugees and, in some camps, electricity.
