Lebanon: ‘Recycled house’ renovation brings light to Syrian refugees (TRAILER)
Description: Full Story: https://youtu.be/3pvTziH7-fU Can recycling improve the lives of refugees? Of the more than one million Syrian refugees who live in Lebanon, UNHCR has found that more than two in five live in dwellings that do not meet minimum humanitarian standards.

They started with the home of Haela and her four children – a one-room apartment which got a radical, and “green”, makeover.
