Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

AVSI: Aid distribution (NFI support - winterization)

“Winterization”: 575 Syrian displaced families not registered with UNHCR have been supported in partnership with ECHO, St. Camille Foundation and COR UNUM with blankets, stoves, jerrycans and kerosene vouchers from December to March 2013 in West Beqaa.


Amel: Livelihood programs, youth activities

Two Amel centers in South Beirut (Ain El Remeneh and Hara Hreik) have started to target Syrian refugee youth and women specifically in their livelihood programs. These programs cover a life skills/ careerplanning, vocational training, and job apprenticeship program, during which outreach and social workers support the youth to develop their social and economic capital.


Amel: Winter Relief Aid distribution

As the Syrian crisis reaches unprecedented proportions, Amel has been expanding its help by providing winter relief to more than 6000 Syrian refugees. The overall plan included the distribution of different kits to families (clothes, hygiene and sanitary kits, basic items such as mattresses, blankets, pillows, food kits and kitchen supplies). Most of the kits are distributed through Amel’s local network in the different community centers across the country. In other cases, Amel visited collective shelters of Syrian refugees in order to deliver the support items.


Amel: Educational support, psychosocial support

Since May 2012, Amel has supported more than 1000 Syrian refugee children to adapt to the Lebanese curriculum by providing remedial support classes.
Classes in English, Arabic, Mathematics and French are taking place three times a week in Amel’s centers in the Bekaa Valley (Arsal, El Ain,Kamed El Loz), South Lebanon (Tyre, Bazourieh, Khiam) and the southern suburbs of Beirut (HaretHreik).


Amel: Medical care, pre- and post-natal care, health awareness sessions

In April 2012, Amel launched free medical consultations for refugees in its center of Ersal, North Bekaa. With the continuous increase of Syrian refugees, the association decided in May 2012 to expand to three additional centers in Bekaa (in El Ain, Kamed el Loz and Mashgharah). In September 2012, a first mobile clinic was launched in North Bekaa.
