Hiyam Moussa helps children study in a school in the Sabra refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon, run by the Department of Service for Palestinian Refugees of the Middle East Council of Churches. Most of the school's 148 students are Syrian refugees, but roughly one-third are Palestinian refugees and a few are poor children from the neighborhood. Lebanon hosts some 1.5 million refugees from Syria, and yet the government prohibits the establishment of large refugee camps, thus pushing many refugee families to search for housing in existing Palestinian refugee camps. This school is supported by the ACT Alliance.
