Families have arrived exhausted and traumatised. Some have faced bombs and bullets to get here.
Now, they are trying to get through one of the most brutal winters in the last two decades with almost nothing. Most families have to rely on the generosity of relatives and neighbours.
Along with local organisations Oxfam is trying to help thousands of families through this difficult winter period; but we could do so much more if we had more funds.
People wanting to donate to Oxfam's Syria appeal can donate by calling 0300 200 1999 or by visiting the charity's website.
