Reflections from Lebanon: Supporting refugees from Syria

Jan 22, 2014, 08:47 AM

Since the conflict in Syria began in March 2011, almost 900,000 refugees have crossed the border into Lebanon in search of sanctuary. For a country with a population of just 4.5 million, the influx of refugees has swelled the population by almost 25 per cent. Lebanon is a country that is teetering on the edge of breaking point; struggling to cope with the burden of so many refugees in desperate need. Christian Aid partners are working in Lebanon to provide practical, as well as emotional, support to some of the most vulnerable refugee communities. In this podcast, Communications Officer, Amy Merone, reflects on her recent trip to Lebanon. #Syria #Lebanon #conflict
