The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has interviewed hundreds of Syrian families who are internally displaced and returnees to understand the impact of the economic crisis on their lives in recent months. Beyond the statistics, it’s crucial to show what it means to live through this economic crisis across the country. The testimonies shared by Syrians from the north to the south through the centre of Syria paint a picture of struggle but also clarity on solutions needed. Our ﬁndings show that the majority of Syrians interviewed had to ration food, while over a quarter had to give up required medication because of unaffordable costs. A harsh winter season has found people burning old clothes and plastic bags to stay warm as fuel prices jumped further. As poverty continues to sweep across the country, decision-makers, donors and governments with inﬂuence over the crisis must not turn their attention away from Syria. Maintaining humanitarian assistance and increasing early recovery and resilience eﬀorts in the country will help Syrians to cope with current and future challenges.
