Syrian Refugee Winter: Dec. 11, 2012 - Photo Gallery 5/12

Syrian children, who fled their homes with their families, attend a drawing class at a makeshift school, at a camp for displaced Syrians in the village of Atmeh, Syria, Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012. This tent camp sheltering some of the hundreds of thousands of Syrians uprooted by the country's brutal civil war has lost the race against winter: the ground under white tents is soaked in mud, rain water seeps into thin mattresses and volunteer doctors routinely run out of medicine for coughing, runny-nosed children.
