The conflict in Syria has forced tens of thousands of people to flee to the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon where they face poor conditions and a lack of food.

The refugees, many of whom are living in schools, have little or no money and say there is a shortage of many necessities, such as milk and nappies.

The Lebanese government is still refusing to build refugee camps and with classes beginning in September, refugees fear they may soon have to live on the street.
