As the United Nations High Commission on Refugees announced on Tuesday that the number of registered refugees fleeing Syria has reached 2 million, we bring you some happier news about our friend Liqaa.

If you’ve been following our campaign for a political solution to the crisis in Syria, you’ll know that Liqaa agreed to be the face of our campaign when she moved to Za’atari refugee camp, heavily pregnant, earlier this year.

En medio de las horrendas imágenes (las cuales no voy a enlazar aquí) que han llegado de Siria esta semana, Naciones Unidas ha anunciado que más de un millón de niños de ese país devastado por la guerra ahora son refugiados. Casi la mitad de los 1,9 millones de refugiados que han huído a países vecinos: Jordania, Líbano, Egipto, Turquía e Iraq.

Amidst the horrific images (which I'll not link to here) coming out of Syria this week, the UN has announced that more than one million children from that war-torn country are now refugees. This is nearly half of the 1.9 million refugees that have fled to neighboring countries: Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey, and Iraq.

Gracias a la luz solar, las personas sirias refugiadas en el campo jordano de Zaatari duermen más seguras por la noche.

Observa detenidamente la imagen superior. ¿Notas algo diferente en las farolas? Las luces que se ven en el fondo de la fotografía (tomada en el campo de Zaatari a principios de este mes) son farolas que funcionan gracias a la luz solar que Oxfam ha instalado para contribuir a mejorar la seguridad de los residentes en el campo.

For Syrian refugees in Jordan’s Zaatari camp, the sun’s light means safer nights.

Look closely at the photo above. Notice anything different about those lampposts? In fact, the lights in the background of the photo—which was taken in Jordan’s Zaatari refugee camp earlier this month—are actually solar-powered lamps installed by Oxfam to help improve residents’ safety.

The Global Humanitarian Assistance report is eagerly anticipated by some of us in the humanitarian field, as it provides us with hard data and trends required for strategic analysis and decisions. As humanitarian managers, high quality data is very important because it supports good management.

The number of reported deaths in Syria continues to rise relentlessly. This time last year the figure was hovering around 20,000. That was bad enough – but no one could have imagined that within 12 months the total would have topped 100,000, with more, inevitably, to come.

Meet Liqaa. She’s a 23 year old English literature graduate from Syria. She’s recently married, and expecting her first child soon. She’s also the face of a new global petition calling on Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama to make urgent progress on the Syria peace talks they promised.
