Syria refugee winter
The tent camp, near the Syrian village of Atmeh, sheltering 12,000 people, some of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians uprooted by the country’s brutal civil war who are loosing the race against winter.
The most basic items are either missing or in short supply. Most of the 12,000 people in the camp fled their homes with just the clothes on their backs, trying to escape intensifying bombing raids by the Syrian airforce. With winter rains getting heavier and temperatures dropping to near freezing at night, they’re now stuck near the border with Turkey in an increasingly dire situation.
