Syrian refugees in Lebanon: A father's hope

15-12-2013 Feature

ICRC financial support is enabling a physical rehabilitation centre in Tripoli, Lebanon, to providing artificial limbs for victims of the war in Syria. Before Diyaa' can receive his new leg, he will have to undergo several operations. Amr, his father, is impatient to see his son walking on two legs again.

The flood of Syrian refugees arriving in Jordan and Lebanon shows no signs of abating. In cooperation with the Lebanese Red Cross and the Jordanian Red Crescent, the ICRC is working to meet the most urgent of their needs. This short film is the third in a series of five, in which we look at the difficulties Syrian refugees are encountering as their painful exile continues, and at what we are doing to help.
