This photo collection shows a few Syrian families who are waiting to register their children with the UNHCR and the organization, Save the Children, so they can attend school in Lebanon after crossing over from Syria.
The latest report from the UNHCR states that over 67,960 Syrian refugees are in Lebanon, with 49,653 registered and over 18,307 in contact with UNHCR. While most children will be able to attend school in Lebanon, there have been many issues with refugees being denied because they lack proper paperwork. Another issue that is increasingly become more of a problem is that of child trauma, as reports say almost every child has seen someone killed and there are no resources available to provide counseling for the children, many of which are suffering from PTSD.
