The United Nations predicts there will be 4,270,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015 - with 88% living in the vast refugee camps in Syria's neighbouring countries. The humanitarian aid effort is led by UN agencies working with the national governments and a multitude of non-governmental aid organisations (NGOs). The momentous task of registering and delivering aid such as food, healthcare and education relies on an array of often innovative information and communications technology.
