Despite political deals to curb the amount of refugees reaching EU shores, 2016 was the deadliest year in recent memory for refugees fleeing conflict. But the vast majority of refugees who have fled the wars in Iraq and Syria are living in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. 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 in the US or Canada, 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.
