Ramadan fasting tough for Syrian refugees

Civilians who have fled to camps in neighbouring countries face difficulties of fasting during Ramadan.

    The number of Syrian refugees has exceeded 1.7 million, according to the United Nations.

    Refugees sheltering in camps in neighbouring countries are struggling, and the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan is adding to their plight.
