By: Mark Leon Goldberg on March 06, 2013 It took two years for the crisis in Syria to escalate to the point where 1 million Syrians have been officially registered by the UN Refugee Agency. The actual number of people who fled is likely to be higher. As I have said before, the most immediate way to help suffering Syrians is to support funding for the basic humanitarian needs of these refugees. The international community needs to step up. Big time.
