Many Syrian refugees who were displaced to Lebanon fear the approaching winter, as they are living in unfinished buildings or awfully inadequate housing. Nadia is a Syrian mother of eight who fled Aleppo one year ago to Sibline in Mount Lebanon, where temperature in winter drops below zero degrees Celsius and snow storms are common. Nadia’s husband used to be a teacher. Now he struggles to get work for one day on a construction site, another day as a gardener, a third as mechanic, and most of the time he cannot find any work at all. “I am happy whenever my husband is working,” says Nadia.

Daraya is a small village in the Mount Lebanon region, about an hour drive from the Lebanese capital Beirut. This is where Ayham lives. His house is in the middle of a little forest. “I have never imagined that I would live in such a place,” says Ayham, pointing at an unfinished house. Ayham’s wife was killed back in Syria. “Six months ago military aircrafts bombed our house in Homs while we were staying inside of it,” says Ayham. “We fled to a safer neighborhood nearby. A few days later fighting started there as well and my wife was hit by a shrapnel in her head.
