Syrian refugees in Lebanon's Bekaa ValleyAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Fadia, who escaped fighting in Aleppo, Syria, picks up bedding in the morning in her family's shelter in the Aamer al Sanad refugee settlement in Kab Elias, a town in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley which has filled with Syrian refugees. Two of her ten children were killed in Syria's civil war.
Lebanon hosts some 1.5 million refugees from Syria, yet allows no large camps to be established. So refugees have moved into poor neighborhoods or established small informal settlements, such as Aamer al Sanad, in border areas. International Orthodox Christian Charities, a member of the ACT Alliance, provides support for refugees in Kab Elias, including a community clinic.
