DRC: Newcomers Programme - Aid distribution

Activity Description: 

As the leading agency on emergency response with newly arrived refugees in Lebanon, DRC assesses and assists
up to 25,000 newcomers every month, approximately a third of all new arrivals in Lebanon with emergency food and non-food items consisted of hygiene kits, baby kits, blankets, mattresses, kitchen sets, buckets, torches and gas vouchers. DRC's outreach workers are conducting home visits in order to assess the newcomers families. They collect household information and refer families to other organizations if needed. After receiving an sms indicating the date, time and location of the next distribution, the family receives its newcomer kit. Families are also encouraged to register with UNHCR.
