We believe that everyone has an equal right to educational opportunities and health care.
Although Lebanon is a small country, the ongoing crisis in Syria has dramatically altered its population and its demography and, by extension, exacerbated its social and economic problems.
According to Lebanese officials thousands of Syrian refugees are officially registered in Lebanon, however, “the total may be twice than that.”
In 2019, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) reported that around 935,454 Syrian refugees are registered in Lebanon – mainly women and children, where most reside in dire living conditions and face an uncertain future.
Syrian children in Lebanon remain extremely vulnerable to the most damaging effects of the Syrian conflict, with limited access to basic resources, healthcare, and education.
To meet the needs of these refugees, MFA provides financial support to a network of six Primary Healthcare Centers that serve as entry points for medical care for Syrian refugees in Beirut, the Bekaa Valley in eastern Lebanon, the North, and the South.
