UNHCR:COVID freezes resettlement syrian family

Syrian family awaits the end of lockdown to start a new life in Norway

Airport closure put Wafaa and her family’s resettlement on hold due to COVID-19, but she hopes that once crisis eases they can leave Lebanon and her teenage son can stop work

After surviving fourteen months living in fear and hunger during the siege of Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, Wafaa Hashim and her family were grateful just to escape with their lives when they fled the siege and made their way to Lebanon as refugees in 2014. 
The family lives in a sparsely furnished apartment in Mount Lebanon Governorate, outside the capital Beirut. Bakr’s earnings barely cover the monthly rent, meaning the family often has to go without other necessities. Recently the family had to manage without electricity for four months, as they were unable to afford the fuel to run the generator.

But the lockdown measures introduced in mid-March to prevent the spread of COVID-19 meant the family’s flights were canceled and their resettlement put on hold.
