For countless Syrian refugees enduring another winter in tents and temporary shelters, a massive storm making its way across the Middle East has brought new misery with destructive winds and torrents of rain and snow.
“Our children are all sick. The cold is unbearable, and we have no means to keep them warm,” said one refugee.
In coastal areas of north Lebanon, heavy rain and wind have destroyed the tents of many refugees and in some areas of Lebanon’s Bekaa valley, the snow is now about three feet deep. The storm has knocked out power to parts of the country and blocked roads leading to rural areas where families live together in tents in informal settlements, stranding them and leaving many refugees in urgent need of food and water.
