Beirut, LEBANON

20 year old Tamara Chaya and her family are Iraqi Christians. Her uncle was kidnapped and murdered in 2006, and then four months ago, armed men came to her father's shop, threatened him and his son and told them to close. As a result, the family of six fled to Lebanon. Tamara and her 18 year old brother Thomas dropped out of school to work in a supermarket. They support the family. They won't return to Iraq because they say that all Christians are being forced to leave. Lebanon is host to an estimated 50,000 Iraqi refugees. Relative to their percent of the overall population, a large proportion of the Iraqi refugees in Lebanon are Christian. Many come to Lebanon because they feel they have better opportunities for work and resettlement than in neighbouring countries.
