Arab Winter: Syrian Refugees in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley

Over the past year, images of dramatic sea crossings to Europe focused international attention on Syria’s refugee crisis. But the vast majority of those fleeing Syria’s civil war, including the most vulnerable, remain in the Middle East, living marginal existences with uncertain futures. More than one million of those Syrians are currently living in limbo in Lebanon, which now hosts more refugees per capita than any other country in the world.

When VICE News first met families in the Al Marj refugee camp over a year ago, many expressed their hope to return to Syria. A year later, we found them learning hard lessons in how they might survive in an exile that could last for many more years.

VICE News returns to a refugee camp in the eastern Lebanese city of Al Marj, where refugees are struggling to meet their own basic needs.

Fleeing Ghouta By Foot (Extra Scene from ‘Syrian Refugees in Lebanon’)

As Syria’s civil war has raged over the past four years, more than a million refugees have fled into neighboring Lebanon. The Bekaa Valley, which serves as the main passageway between Damascus and Beirut, is now home to the largest concentration of Lebanon’s Syrian refugees.

Currently in Lebanon there is one Syrian for every four Lebanese citizens — a population growth that has created a strain on the small villages and towns that bear the responsibility of hosting the refugees. Al Marj, a small city of about 15,000 in the southern end of the Bekaa Valley, is home to a refugee camp where approximately 400 families are living.

VICE News traveled to the Bekaa Valley to see how the refugee population is faring as winter fully sets in, and found that the freezing temperatures are only one of their problems.

In this extra scene, VICE News correspondent David Enders meets a Syrian refugee who fled with his family from Ghouta to Lebanon by foot, and is still waiting to be provided shelter, 20 days after arriving at al Marj refugee camp.
