2014-12-05

Lebanon is home to more than one million Syrian refugees. One of them is Um Mohammed. She and her family lost everything. They're now trying to survive a harsh of winter.

UM MOHAMMED
Syrian refugee
"This winter is so tough for us. In these two, three days we have hated our life. It's so difficult to sleep at night, so cold. All night it's pouring down rain on us and the tent is falling apart. It leaks from here and there, and there is mud underneath us.”

While her husband lies sick in bed, she and her children peel garlic ten hours a day for less than one dollar.

Thousands of families face similar situations. Now, they may not have food for the winter.

The World Food Programme announced that money is tight and it still needs to feed roughly two million Syrian refugees.

"I am crying all night, my eyes are puffy from crying all night, what can I do? Every day I am thinking, what can I do for them, where can I take them. My heart aches to see them like this but what can I do?"

NGOs are asking the international community for support. That way, thousand of refugees families from Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt can survive.
