Inside Syria: Life on one piece of bread a day

An International Rescue Committee aid worker (his identity obscured for security reasons) takes us inside Areesha displacement camp, northeast Syria. Here 43,000 people who fled ISIS are crowded into a camp built for less than half that number. 

Some 25,000 people are living on one piece of bread a day. Others have nothing to eat. The IRC is responding with emergency meals, which we have distributed to 5,000 families. We are also setting up mobile health clinics, and hope to deliver blankets and other urgently needed supplies as winter approaches. Learn more.
