Palestinian Refugee Women from Syria
More than 90,000 Palestinians from Syria have sought shelter in Lebanon’s overcrowded, poor 12 Palestinian refugee camps. Women and children account for 74% of the refugees. Six out of 10 families have to share one room and end up hanging blankets or pieces of cloth to mark off space for privacy.
Women struggle to hold their families together despite the heightened social and economic pressures. Many have become the heads of their households because their husbands were killed or stayed behind in Syria, or have come to Lebanon with them but can’t cope with being unable to find work to provide for the family, as they did back home.
