Maha Shoker, a health educator with International Orthodox Christian Charities, a member of the ACT Alliance, uses a mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) measuring tape as she examines a Syrian refugee child in the community health center in Kab Elias, a town in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley which has filled with Syrian refugees. Another refugee child looks on. Lebanon hosts some 1.5 million refugees from Syria, yet allows no large camps to be established. So refugees have moved into poor neighborhoods or established small informal settlements in border areas. International Orthodox Christian Charities provides support for the community clinic in Kab Elias, which serves many of the refugees. <br />
