Chebaa, Lebanon

Syrian refugee Omar Ezadeen Bedawi, 24, tends to his horse at a stable in Chebaa. Omar was imprisoned and tortured by the Syrian regime and fled to Lebanon after he was released in September 2013. In the village of Beit Jinn his family owned a farm and when they fled from Syria they brought some sheep, two mules and a horse. Now Omar uses the mules and horse to transfer refugees fleeing the village and its surrounds. Often he waits in the mountains on the remote border and receives injured persons and the elderly who cannot walk on the rough terrain. The mountain crossing takes at least nine hours over the foothills of Mount Hermon and has been undertaken by thousands of refugees fleeing from Beit Jinn, which has been under siege for months.
