As the worst of the winter storm Alexa cleared, UNHCR and its partners were able to resume aid deliveries to vulnerable Syrian refugee communities. Arsal is one of the highest towns in the Bekaa Valley, sitting at an altitude of over 1500 feet. It now has a refugee population of over 21,000 who recently fled fighting in Qalamoun region just across the border in Syria. Deliveries of vital aid items were received, including fuel vouchers, blankets, and sealing off kits.
