While the UNHCR counted approximately 500,000 registered Syrian refugees in January 2013 figures reached more than 4,6 million three years later. The humanitarian situation inside the country keeps deteriorating as in Aleppo, Madaya and other besieged areas about 400,000 people are searching for aid according to UNHCR estimates.
