Syrian refugees in Lebanon after heavy snow storm
A child-friendly space funded by the European Commission and run by NRC, at an informal tent settlement for Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon.
With Storm Zina raging across Lebanon, hundreds of vulnerable Syrian refugees living in tents have been badly affected by the cold. Those living in the Bekaa Valley have been particularly badly hit as temperatures fell well below zero. NRC staff distributed wood and plastic sheeting to prevent their homes from collapsing, as well as drainage kits and sand bags to prevent tents and latrines from flooding once the snow starts to melt. NRC is also delivering clean drinking water and helping empty latrines and septic tanks safely.
