One in four Syrian refugee households in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt are now run solely by a woman, leaving mothers struggling to make ends meet and forcing children into work, a report by the United Nations released Tuesday says.Some 2.8 million people have fled Syria's civil war, the vast majority women and children. The report, "Woman Alone: The fight for survival by Syria's refugee women," is based on the testimony of 135 women, who are all singularly responsible for managing their homes in the absence of their husbands, many of whom have been killed or jailed.However, Kelley warned that as funding to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis across the region has reached less that 30 percent of 2014's target so far, it was impossible to cover all the needs of vulnerable women.
