Zeina’ takes Lebanon by storm

Oula

 

A 19 year old refugee girl. Oula is urban refugee living in Qab Elias in Bekaa Valley

 

Paraphrasing Oula: all family huddled around heater for warmth. They also cook on the same heater.

 

Oula “We bought supplies but not a lot since we don’t have enough money.”

 

Oula who is also a UNHCR volunteer, went out to assess a number of tented settlements in Qab Elias area in Bekaa Valley. These are her observations

 

“The situation is very difficult and many tents are at risk of collapsing. I have seen many tents leaking and many people don’t have fuel for heaters. These tents won’t last. People are very scared of the storm. Some help each other with food, others are sharing tents.”
