Syrian Refugees in Lebanon, March 2016

Lebanon

Life after leaving the war zone, March 2016

Tuesday 15 March, 2016 marked five years since the start of the Syrian war. Nearly 5 million Syrians have left their country, seeking refuge from bombs, bullets and hunger. Many are living in neighbouring countries, like Lebanon where they are forced to live on less than a few dollars a day and are not officially allowed to work. Children are often not able to go to school because families have no money to pay for transport.
