Medical and psychosocial support in refugee camps

Summary

In Lebanon, the large majorities of refugees live outside of the capital and are unable to access humanitarian help or basic services. Unregistered refugees are deprived of relief assistance, children can't attend school, infectious diseases are widespread in the densely populated informal settlements. With a well equiped bus, we bring our team of psychologists, doctors, social workers and animators to help to improve the situation, find emergency solutions and focus on children and families.

Challenge

Secluded from 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.

Solution

To counter this problem, 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. Refugee families recieve regular medical check ups, group & individual psychological support, as well as entertainment.

Long-Term Impact

This project will significantly improve the mental, physical, social and psychological health of refugees, children and marginalized populations in rural areas in Lebanon. By satisfying some of their most basic human needs, we empower refugees to build a better future for themselves and their families.
