Roughly a year and a half prior, doctors discovered a tumor in zacharia's kidney. He had two surgeries and eight chemo sessions. They commuted to Damascus for chemotherapy until the road became too dangerous, and they had to stop treatment. By the time they reached Lebanon and tried to resume chemotherapy, his health deteriorated dramatically. There are roughly one million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, comprising almost 20% of Lebanon's current population. With no formal refugee camps in the country, Syrian refugees live in makeshift accommodations across Lebanon, straining Lebanon's infrastructure and resources. Many Syrians have struggled to access and afford health care, especially when trying to treat terminal and chronic illness. (Credit: Lynsey Addario/ UNHCR) April 2, 2014 251
