Why Lebanon?

More refugees live in Lebanon per capita than any other country—an estimated two million refugees in a population of 6.8 million. Seventy percent of the refugees live in poverty, and grow poorer with each passing year. Refugees are excluded from the formal labour market; they have no legal ways to earn an income. Many of them live in tents or substandard buildings. Vulnerable families are in dire need of assistance, but the country has been stretched beyond its capacity to cope.

How You Can Help

You can help refugee families live in Lebanon with greater dignity. Your gift makes it possible for them to have a safe place to live, including customised shelter solutions for people with specific needs. Your help provides health care, midwife home visits, community health supports, addresses for refugees through GIS-mapping, and various kinds of life-sustaining assistance. With your support, the people who might have slipped through the cracks will be given the attention that they need.
