The ongoing war in Syria and the insecurity in the liberated areas of northern Iraq are reasons why many refugees still remain in Lebanon. It is well known that the standard of living in Lebanon is very high and even local families with a low income do not have it easy.
In cooperation with the Syriac Youth Union, Syriac Cross has identified refugee families and people in need to support them with food vouchers. From 15-16 March, in addition to individual home visits, we welcomed hundreds of people to the centre of the Syriac Youth Union to distribute food vouchers. Altogether we were able to help 173 families, which consist of 684 family members.
This project was funded by Shai Fund and the Brentwood-United Methodist Church.
