Yesterday, Yehya, 18, became the 1 millionth Syrian to be registered as a refugee in Lebanon. Syrian refugees now equal almost a quarter of the resident population of Lebanon.
Yehya left the besieged city of Homs during the UN evacuation in February with his mother and two sisters. His father was killed early on in the crisis, and with his older brothers still in Homs, Yehya has taken responsibly for looking after his mother and sisters.
"I would really like to go back to school but here the living conditions are so hard… I need to work to afford rent," he says.
