Picture Winter in a Syrian Refugee Camp

"It really gets cold in winter," a colleague had warned me, as I prepared to leave for Jordan earlier this month to join the World Vision team serving Syrian refugee families living there. Like most people, I wondered, "how cold could it possibly get in the Middle East?"

Who Is Responsible for Syrian Refugees?

Recently, there has been much discussion about establishing a "safe haven" within Syria's borders to protect the growing number of refugees fleeing the country's civil war, which unfortunately have received little backing. Can we hold that bordering states have a duty to accept more fleeing Syrians? This is a tough call, as the international community is not helping the situation in any certain terms.
