This family came from Homs in Syria.
The woman has three children. One of her daughters is married and has a child. There is also her son’s wife with them.
They arrived to Lebanon three weeks ago although the married daughter came here a month and a half ago.
They were in Al “Qaseer” in Homs but because of the worsening situation there they moved to Damascus, to “Alset Zainab” neighborhood. From there they moved to another neighborhood called Al “Abaseyeen”. Finally they went back to Homs. The heavy bombing started again and there were no taxis to take them out of there so they had to wait. After that they managed to go to “Al Tal” because they were informed that it was safe there. After two days the clashes started, they moved again to “Adra”. After being on the road for ten days they arrived to Lebanon. They couldn’t take anything with them, not even clothes. They crossed the border illegally, walking through the mountains.
Life in Lebanon is much better for them than in Syria. At least children are not scared and can sleep at night. They also received medical treatment because they were sick in Syria and couldn’t get any help there. Children can go to school although her daughter’s child won’t be able to register now because they don’t have the needed documents.

In meetings and press conferences, everyone is talking about Syria and discussing possible solutions to the ongoing crisis. Egyptian President Morsi, along with Foreign Minister Kamel Amr, held talks with the Iranian, Turkish and French Foreign Ministers, touching on the increasing number of refugees, the fate of Bashar Al Assad and the "contact group," consisting of Egypt, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia who have both influence and interest in the outcome of the crisis in Syria. Talks also gravitated toward the recent film on youtube that insulted the Prophet Mohammed and sparked massive protests among enraged Muslim communities.
