Mohammad was reunited with his family - at a cost... Mohammad was reunited with his family - at a cost. In 2018, the 28-year-old Syrian refugee was forced to flee his home in Aleppo. Ongoing violence and airstrikes destroyed his neighborhood and gravely injured Mohammad, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. With the help of friends, he fled to Jordan and was reunited with his family. Today, he lives in a small apartment in the city of Irbid, in northern Jordan, with his mother Mariam and his younger siblings. The family depends on monthly cash assistance from UNHCR to meet their basic needs including rent, food and other essentials. Jordan is one of the countries most affected by the Syria crisis, hosting the second highest share of refugees per capita in the world. Over 80% of Syrian refugees in Jordan live in urban areas.
