Images of Lebanon #22

Published by under Images of Lebanon

These are examples of plumbing and electrical wiring in the Burj el-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp in the southern suburbs of Beirut. Unfortunately kids are killed all the time from touching exposed wet wires. Needless to say, it was a hazardous environment for a tall bugger like me!

Like all of the camps in Lebanon, conditions are terrible. The sewerage system overflows in winter, families are crammed into tiny apartments, and what little infrastructure there is is falling apart. Unemployment is extremely high, although perversely it’s highest among the most educated – Lebanon’s labour laws prevent Palestinians from working in a number of core professional fields, so it’s the low-skilled who are more likely to find work as labourers or mechanics.
