Rich countries have paid out less than half the amount they originally pledged to help countries recover from a snapshot of three major humanitarian crises, according to Oxfam.
Oxfam and its partners have organized events to commemorate the World Refugee Day in Jordan and Lebanon. In Tabbaneh, Tripoli (Lebanon), we've organized a carnival with our partner Utopia.
"The new restrictions on entry for Syrians into Lebanon are part of a worrying, wider trend reflecting quite simply less and less opportunities for Syrians to escape conflict inside Syria," said Camilla Jelbart Mosse, Oxfam's Syria Campaign Manager.
Oxfam is helping refugee families from Syria face another harsh winter in Lebanon, like in Bouday, a small town in Lebanon’s Bekaa valley where several informal settlements have been set up by refugees fleeing Syria’s war.
Oxfam welcomes the importance placed in Berlin on assisting neighbouring countries, but words alone are not enough.
As winter approaches, hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees living in makeshift camps in Lebanon are facing freezing weather and struggling to survive the storm.
