Deprived of any assistance, often unable or not allowed to work, many Syrian families are confined in camps with no prospects of a normal life. This difficult situation can lead to severe mental and physical health issues for both adults and children. The situation has worsened since the start of COVID-19, which has caused deteriorating economic conditions, leading to loss of livelihood for those able to work, a decrease in already scarce assistance available, and fear of being infected.
To counter this, INSAN operates a mobile bus which welcomes and entertains up to 100 children at a time. The bus is adequately equipped to provide medical, psychological & social consultations for adults and children. With a diverse team of psychologists, doctors, social workers & animators, the bus assists the neediest refugees in the most remote areas. Families receive emergency food parcels, regular medical check-ups, group & individual psychological support, as well as entertainment.
This project will significantly improve the mental, physical, social and psychological health of refugee adults and children in rural areas of Lebanon. By providing support to meet some of their most basic human needs, such as food, hygiene products and medical assistance, as well as mental health services and a chance for children to play and laugh, we strengthen their resilience in the long-term. Through this approach, refugees improve their chances to build a better future for themselves.
