Food and shelter for Syrian refugees

In Lebanon, more than one million Syrian refugees live in unsafe dwellings under poor hygienic conditions. As they have hardly any income opportunities, most households are dependent on food aid. Every third family does not even eat one hot meal a day. Our project aims to improve the nutrition of Syrian refugees and needy Lebanese families.

Lebanon is by far the country with the largest number of Syrian refugees in terms of population. In some regions the population has doubled as a result. We have been active with local partners since 2014.

  • We provide 3,500 people three days a week with nutritious, warm meals in community kitchens.
  • We support income-generating activities to reduce dependency on humanitarian aid. Beneficiaries receive training and start-up kits to work as self-employed people.
  • Children and adults receive psychosocial support. More than 1,000 adults and more than 400 children can participate in discussion groups, group meetings and activities. In this way we help them to cope with the losses and injuries caused by the war and to cope with their current dependency and isolation.

The Preparation of hot, nutritious meals and delivery to the beneficiaries and the management of the community kitchens (adherence to hygiene standards and the given nutritional plans) will enable those affected not to be permanently dependent on food aid but to generate their own income.

Thank you so much that you support our efforts in Lebanon.
