Syrian farmers battle drought

Farmers relying on hand-outs as production sinks due to environmental challenges.

Climate Change has left farmers in Syria doing something they have never done before – relying on food hand-outs.

Three years of consecutive drought has led to the country producing less than half of its food needs.

According to the UN World Food Programme [WFP], about 1.3 million people are severely affected, and 300,000 are in urgent need of help.

Hoda Abdel-Hamid reports on the people who are losing hope that things will ever return to how they once were.
