More refugees live in Lebanon per capita than any other country—an estimated two million refugees in a population of 6.8 million. Meanwhile, eighty-nine percent of the refugees live in extreme 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. Much of the humanitarian response in Lebanon has focused on supporting refugees. But the situation has gotten much worse since the Beirut port explosion. The tides have shifted; the situation for Lebanese families has worsened. Communities that have been hosting Syrian refugees in Lebanon are now facing a crisis of their own.
