Al Jaleel is one of the old­est Pales­tinian refugee camps in Le­banon, re­main­ing from the Pales­tinian ex­o­dus of 1948. Syr­ian fam­i­lies have be­gun us­ing it as a place of refuge af­ter flee­ing Syria as there are no of­fi­cial refugee camps set up in Le­banon. Th­ese boys pic­tured try to main­tain some nor­mal­ity amongst the ad­ver­sity of their lives, com­ing to­gether to play soc­cer in a bar­ren field.
