After a while they started bombing the towns and villages. The army sent tanks to demolish my house. They broke down the walls and entered with the tanks through the columns. Nothing was left of our house. We fled to another village, but there we were caught by heavy shelling, so I took the children who were terrified of the bombs and brought them to Aarsal in Lebanon.

[In Syria] 400 bombs were falling per hour. We could not cope with the situation anymore, we have children. We had to sleep under trees, in a cave (grotto), in a valley to hide from the bombs. Finally we had no other choice than to flee to Lebanon to protect our children and our lives.

Testimony by a Syrian father of 8 children, who fled the conflict to seek refuge in  Lebanon. Trapped by war, they escaped and they survived—but their living conditions are poor and more healthcare is needed.
