    Life is becoming even more difficult for Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.

    Winter has always taken its toll on the hundreds of thousands forced to live in camps near the border.

    But this year the economic crisis in their host country is increasing the struggle for parents to be able to feed their children or send them to school.
