Syrian refugees stay hungry in Ramadan

Syrian refugees in Lebanon break their fasts with basic meals provided by charities and sometimes not at all.

    Syrian refugees across the Middle East are having to spend another Ramadan away from the festivities and extravagant meals associated with the month.

    Many say they feel abandoned during a month when Muslims are meant to remember the less fortunate.

    At one camp in Lebanon, charities are only able to provide meals for families to break their fasts every other day.
