Humanitarian Context

Seven years on since the start of the crisis in Syria and the needs of one and a half million (of these one million registered) Syrian refugees continue to grow. The challenges are greater than ever: refugees are faced with massive socioeconomic difficulties and suffer deep vulnerabilities, in the midst of growing pressure on the host communities and an uncertain future.
Given the impact of the Syrian crisis and the subsequent influx of a staggering number of refugees fleeing the violence, Action Against Hunger rapidly increased our cover – from Bekaa to the entire South region, including important programmes in difficult to reach areas – to deliver emergency aid, food security and nutrition programmes, offering a response to the needs of the affected population.
The 25 per cent increase in the population living in Lebanon has also had a severe impact on the country’s fragile structure and local communities’ wellbeing. We are therefore working to ensure that the short-term assistance responds to lasting needs and that the Lebanese population are benefiting from the programmes through local production and purchase, improved competition and enterprise creation.
