A decade of civil war in Syria has forced millions from their homes, leaving neighbouring countries struggling to cope with the influx of refugees. Tens years on, many of the displaced are still living in camps, with little or no prospect of returning home.
"Those who return to Syria are usually the older people because youths run the risk of being enrolled in the army," says Mohammed, a Syrian refugee who settled just outside the Zaatari camp in Jordan.
Many fear persecution from a vengeful Syrian regime should they seek to return home. They include Aiham, a refugee from Deraa who was shot at the start of the uprising and is now a paraplegic.
"No one will ever forget the bloodshed, no one will ever forget the martyrs," says Aiham, whose family relies on NGOs for food and shelter in the Jordanian capital, Amman.
