Syria's refugee crisis 'getting worse', UN says

  • 13 February 2013

For nearly two years now we've been telling you about the conflict in Syria - and the fighting is still driving families out of their homes.

The United Nations, which works for peace between countries, says last month alone there were 25% more refugees, with up to 5,000 people each day going to neighbouring countries like Lebanon.

A survey found that 80% of Syria's refugees don't have proper shelter, blankets or medicine.

The charity Doctors Without Borders is one of many helping people there who have had to flee the violence.
