Lebanon is slipping deeper and deeper into a political and economic crisis. In 2020, the families of over half a million children in Beirut were already struggling to put food on the table. With prices continuing to rise and the currency in free fall, the country is at breaking point.
Syrian refugees make up nearly a quarter of Lebanon’s population. Nearly 90% of Syrians are now living in extreme poverty and less than 30% of Syrian children are in school.
We are supporting Lebanese and refugee families with cash grants so they can buy what they need with dignity. And we’re supporting small and medium sized business to keep themselves afloat through the crisis.
