Forsaken: Syrians in Lebanon
34 images Created 18 Jan 2014
Unlike in Jordan or Turkey, where most Syrian refugees live in UNHCR-constructed camps, those in Lebanon face a different struggle. They share extremely cramped and overpriced apartments in impoverished neighborhoods, or build tented encampments out of discarded vinyl billboards on the edges of farmer’s fields. Some live inside abandoned buildings. UNHCR has registered over one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon; even conservative estimates place that number much higher.
