Country Info

In Lebanon, CARE has set up operations in 2013 to support the growing needs of Syrian refugees. Over the next two years, our emergency response includes:

  • Supporting refugees to seek assistance so that they are able to address their immediate needs;
  • Providing access to shelter for newly arrived refugees and crisis-displaced families;
  • Assisting refugees and host communities with livelihood opportunities and vocational training that will help them earn a living;
  • Supporting refugees and host communities with access to water and sanitation;
  • Ensuring support for host communities that have been overwhelmed by the crisis; and
  • Providing psychosocial support, protecting the rights of vulnerable women and helping prevent gender-based violence.
