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. One Beirut NGO has set out to change that, using eco-friendly methods and “upcycling”. They started with the home of Haela and her four children – a one-room apartment which got a radical, and “green”, makeover.

Pre-paid debit cards for refugees in Turkey
Description: Four hundred and six-five thousand Syrians are reported to have been killed or missing in Syria's six-year civil war. Nearly one-quarter of these are presumed to be civilians. There are 5.5 million Syrian refugees in the world and 3.1 million are registered in Turkey. The Emergency Social Safety Net programme is an EU cash-based programme which now supports nearly one million of the most vulnerable refugees in Turkey. Launched in autumn 2016, it is the biggest humanitarian aid project the EU has ever funded. The cash assistance received by refugees goes towards covering the basic needs of living: rent, food, and bills. The programme aims to reach 1.3 million refugees by the end of 2017. Financed by the EU's Humanitarian Aid Operations department, it is implemented by the World Food Programme (WFP), hand in hand with the Turkish Red Crescent and the government of Turkey.

The New Barbarianism – The Syria Vortex – Chapter 2 of 6
Description: “The Syria Vortex” explores the unprecedented scope, scale and massive human crisis in Syria, the result of the deliberate military targeting of healthcare and humanitarian infrastructure, actively supported by Russia. There have been more than 450 attacks on medical facilities in-country and more than 800 healthcare workers killed. Nearly a quarter of them were shot and dozens more were tortured to death. Although Syria represents an obscene “new low,” many experts argue that what we have witnessed in Syria is emblematic of a broader, dangerous new phenomenon — a surge of sustained violent attacks across multiple conflicts by states and non-states alike. This is chapter two of six of the feature-length documentary "The New Barbarianism," check back on Sept. 21st for chapter 3, "Geneva Under Siege." --------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to our channel: http://cs.is/2dCfTve CSIS is the world's #1 defense and national security think tank.
