Challenge

Innocent civilians on both sides — especially vulnerable children, the elderly and the sick — are being harmed by the ongoing violence. The UN estimates nearly 900,000 people have been displaced by the conflict. Few agencies have been able to reach Southern Lebanon, where the fighting is most intense. Mercy Corps was able to reach the Southern village of Marjayoun on Tuesday, August 1st with critical food supplies and blankets.

Solution

As one of the few humanitarian agencies with a long-term presence in Lebanon, we are especially well positioned to contribute to the response, and are working to reach 100,000 vulnerable people with vital food, water and supplies.

Long-Term Impact

As we deliver immediate relief, we are also looking to long-term needs that will most assuredly arise from the devastation caused by the conflict.
