Ahead of a donor conference in Geneva Tuesday, rich countries are being urged to resettle just 5 percent of Syrian refugees by the end of 2015 .Currently, only 7,000 Syrian refugees have been resettled in a third country through the UNHCR, out of a total of some 3.59 million.Germany is in the process of taking in 30,000 people but the U.K. has resettled just 90 Syrian refugees thus far.In October 2014, only 18,453 refugees registered with the UNHCR in neighboring border countries, an 88 percent drop from the monthly 2013 average, which gives an indication of the extent to which people are increasingly trapped inside Syria.That amount should enable aid to some 12.2 million people inside the country, including displaced people, and to the Syrians living as refugees in neighboring countries.Many refugees from Syria have sought asylum in countries beyond neighboring countries.
