In this Friday, Sept. 7, 2012 photo, Ali Fareed, 8, who fled his home with his family due to fighting between the Syrian army and the rebels, lies on the ground waiting for a doctor's arrival to check on him as he suffers from food poisoning, outside a makeshift clinic, at the Bab Al-Salameh border crossing where he and his family take refugee in hopes of entering one of the refugee camps in Turkey, near the Syrian town of Azaz. Despite rising international concern and new pledges of aid, the plight of Syria’s internally displaced is growing worse as fighting shows no signs of slackening and more head for the borders. Syria’s neighbors are reluctant to take in more refugees, leaving thousands, at least half young children, stranded on the borders with poor hygiene and insufficient food. At the Bab al-Salameh border crossing there are already an estimated 5,000 refugees hoping to cross into Turkey, which already hosts 80,000 Syrians and isn’t allowing more in for now.
