Abdallah Hamed from Aleppo fixes his family's tent after it was broken by the wind at Azaz Camp, just inside the Syrian border with Turkey, Feb. 22, 2013. According to administrators, this camp holds roughly 9,000 to 10,000 internally displaced persons (IDP's). Some food is provided by a Turkish humanitarian organization, and Qatar Red Crescent provided tents. There is very little electricity, and no running water. The UN Refugee Agency has reported a sharp increase in refugees fleeing Syria for neighboring countries in the first months of 2013.
