Summary

Today, the majority of people in Lebanon live in poverty (more than 55% of the total population) and unable to access even primary healthcare services. However, infectious diseases have an excellent breeding ground in the densely populated neighbourhoods and refugee camps, and the numerous crisis increase the need for psychosocial and medical support. Insan, thus, offers those most vulnerable people basic medical and psychosocial support and always attempts to reach to more people.

Challenge

A great majority of Lebanese are currently suffering due to a massive economic collapse of their country, unprecedented inflation, rising unemployment and daily increases of prices. The situation was made even worse by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Beirut Port explosion in August 2020. For refugees and migrants this is a double burden as many of them are also confined in poorly equipped informal camps, lacking legal status and, thus, with no prospects of a normal life.

Solution

To counter this, INSAN will be providing medical, psychological and social consultations and handing out free medications to the most vulnerable. Our team consists of psychologists, doctors, nurses, etc. We will provide care at our centers all over Lebanon, operate a mobile unit (a bus equipped with medical tools and supplies) that serve the most remote areas, and provide home care for those with a lack of mobility. Families will also receive emergency food parcels and hygiene kits as needed.

Long-Term Impact

This project will significantly improve the mental, physical and social well-being of vulnerable Lebanese as well as refugees, migrants and stateless individuals in Lebanon. By providing support to meet some of their most basic human needs, we strengthen their resilience in the long-term. Through this approach, the vulnerable communities will be able to get through the current crisis and improve their chances to build a better future for themselves.
