Syrian refugee Amira, with her daughter Amani, keeps warm in their shelter in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, where winter temperatures frequently plummet below freezing.

These children are among the millions of Syrians who’ve been forced to flee their homes but still are trapped inside their country, where war has raged since 2011.
