The number of refugees fleeing the war in Syria has reached one million, says the United Nations. These refugees pictured are crossing into the neighbouring country of Jordan, hoping to find safety.
One of the places Syrians have fled to is the Zaatari refugee camp, on the border with Jordan. Once they arrive, they have to register their names at the camp. The wait can be long - as so many refugees are trying to find shelter here every day.
Once in the camp, many people live in tents like these. They're very basic, but provide a safe shelter for people who otherwise would not have a house to live in. Not all the refugees inside the camp live in tents, however - some have made their home in caravans.
Normal day-to-day life doesn't stop when you're living in a refugee camp. Schools have been set up in the camp, but often in cramped conditions and facilities are basic. This school had to close temporarily three weeks ago - there was a rainstorm which meant the building had to be used as a shelter instead.
Many refugees also set up stalls selling items that other refugees may need. This woman is selling second hand clothes.
People travel by road and by foot to get to the refugee camps in neighbouring countries. This baby has arrived in Jordan and is being helped from the vehicle by Jordanian soldiers.
Life is tough at the camp...and unless a solution to the Syrian crisis is found soon, it's likely to get even tougher for the thousands of people who've been forced from their homes.
