Syrian refugees brace for harsh winter

Refugees suffering in squalid camps in Lebanon prepare for worse conditions as colder weather sets in.

    Hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who fled conflict have faced harsh living conditions in numerous neighbouring countries. 

    Lebanon has taken in tens of thousands of refugees, many of them seeking refuge in the Bekaa Valley. As winter sets in, however, most are still without many basic neccesities.
