In 2016, the EU scrambled to strike political deals to reduce the numbers of refugees reaching its shores. In 2018, the US has accepted only 11 Syrian refugees so far. The vast majority of refugees who have fled the wars in Iraq and Syria will never see resettlement in the EU, the US or Canada. While Turkey hosts the highest number of registered refugees at 2.7 million, it is estimated that a full 33 percent of people in Jordan are refugees - whether from Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Sudan or Somalia. Many are waiting for a shot at resettlement elsewhere, but others, having exhausted their finances or lost all their family, are struggling to eke out a living and survive in limbo, from farmlands on Jordan's border with Syria, to the impoverished neighborhoods of east Amman.
