Running out of time: Survival of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon

This report documents the findings of a rapid assessment of the needs of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon undertaken over 10 days in November 2013. A two-person team interviewed Syrian refugee families in Beirut, Tripoli, and the Bekaa, as well as a broad spectrum of informed staff at local and international NGOs and agencies. The report considers and addresses issues that refugee families face: stressful living conditions, deprivation of basic needs, social isolation, limited access to education, child labor, and sexual exploitation. The report also reflects on the response of the Lebanese government and international actors to the growing humanitarian crisis.
