They are destitute, frightened, shocked. Since August 2012, the Order of Malta’s Kahldieh socio-medical centre in north Lebanon has been inundated with refugees from Syria. To date, the centre has provided free medical treatment for more than 1,300 Syrian refugees. The service has expanded into nearby villages where refugees are living in deepest poverty.
More resources are desperately needed.
