Syria (Pre-War) 44% 24.4 million Scotland of the UK would be in need of aid; that's 28 million Brits struggling to get the everyday basics. 9.3 million people in Syria urgently require assistance in order to survive. 5.3 million Northern Ireland 1.8 million Wales 3.1 million Refugees 11.2% of our population would be registered as refugees in other countries, a total of 7.13 million people. 49.9% of 49.9% refugees are 17 or under; this is 1.2 million children. There are now 2,4 million Syrian refugees living away from their homeland. In Lebanon one quarter of the country's population are now Syrian refugees.
