Refugees in Arsal
In the ten years of conflict in Syria, more than half of Syria’s pre-war population of 22 million have fled their homes.
5.6 million of those displaced are registered as refugees abroad – 93% of them in neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey, which have struggled to cope with one of the largest refugee exoduses in recent history, with one million Syrian refugee children born in exile.
Over 15,000 refugees are sheltered in Arsal in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, a mountainous region known for its harsh winters, and have been experiencing their second severe winter since ordered by the Higher Defence Council in 2019 to dismantle their solid shelters, on the grounds of so-called security risks – a decree subsequently reinforced by bulldozers.
The consequence was refugees enduring winter temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees Centigrade, under the enforced “non-permanent” shelter of thin plywood, and tarpaulin – all that was allowed to shield them from the extreme winds, torrential rain, and heavy snow, which provided the extraordinary images of snowmen, pictured among the tents!Under Lebanon’s rapid inflation, Syrian refugees have faced soaring prices and rents – forcing them to choose between food, and essentials, and paying bills. And already food insecure, they have, along with the rest of the world, had to cope with the additional catastrophic ravages of Covid.
SKT work with marginalised and vulnerable communities including with orphans and widows to help them build better futures. With their 100% donation policy, you can rest assured that every penny of your donation will go directly to those who need it most.
