The conflict in Syria, now in its 20th month, has forced an estimated 465,000 Syrians to flee their homeland, according to the United Nations.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expects the number of refugees to reach 700,000 by January, and aid organizations warn that the humanitarian crisis will deepen as temperatures plunge during the winter months.

What is life like in the refugee camps? We pose your questions to Syrians displaced by the conflict who are currently living in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan.
