Jan Egeland speaking with Hiba (21) and Ragheb (26), the parents to 6-month-old Hadil, who was born in Lebanon. Her Syrian parents are not able to register the baby in Lebanon and provide the baby with a legal status.
"We haven't completed our daughter's birth registration because we left all of our documents in Syria when we fled. I need to secure my daughter's future," Ragheb said.
"How long will we keep living this way? I cannot take my daughter to a clinic and I cannot move around because I don't have documents," he added.
Egeland visited Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon on February 25, 2015.
