Reporter Shaunagh Connaire and Director Andrew Carter travel to Lebanon where an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees have fled the war. They reveal that despite offers of assistance from the international community, some of those most in need refugee children with serious medical conditions are suffering and dying while they wait for help.

The UNHCR says that their policy is to resettle only those with a good health prognosis – and that with limited funds they have to optimize their use. Meanwhile no government or agency is keeping track of the numbers of children dying while they wait for treatment or resettlement.
