A desperate and largely unknown humanitarian crisis is deteriorating in the Lake Chad Basin region of West Africa, forcing millions of people to flee their homes and leaving millions more in need of humanitarian assistance. Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
Syrian refugees in Northern Lebanon, reminisce on how they celebrated Eid - the festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan - back home. This letter is based on the testimonies of Wafaa and Khansa, who are Oxfam beneficiaries.
More than 1.8 million Syrians have fled their homes and are now living in neighboring countries. Life is tough and the month of Ramadan makes them think of home more than ever.
