PBS News Weekend

Season 4, Episode 94 of 99

Syria's five-year-long civil war has killed more than 400,000 people and displaced 11 million more, 5 million of whom have become refugees. But as people flee the smoldering humanitarian crisis to places like Europe, Turkey and Jordan, tiny Lebanon now holds the distinction of hosting the most refugees per capita of any country in the world. Syria's southern neighbor has absorbed more than a million refugees in the past few years, who now make up about 20 percent of the country's populace. On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay reports on how Lebanon is coping with so many refugees and how one charity project is trying to help the refugees find a better life elsewhere.
