Responding to the deteriorated situation in Lebanon, INTERSOS further strengthened its protection assistance to the ongoing and new needs and vulnerabilities. INTERSOS Lebanon was able to ensure the necessary flexibility, quickly converting projects in the areas of distribution and emergency shelter in response to the explosion in Beirut. It has also adapted to the conditions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic for emergency education activities, basic assistance programmes, as well as protection and legal assistance activities carried out by mobile teams, particularly in the Bekaa Valley.
We work in Lebanon since 2006.

During 2020 Lebanon has been characterized by multiple crises, creating a complex situation unlikely to be resolved in the imminent future. On one side the prolonged Syrian crisis made Lebanon the country with the highest number of refugees per capita in the world. On the other hand, there has been a massive impact on the most vulnerable (refugees and local populations) of the economic crisis that began in 2019 and worsened in 2020, in the midst of political instability, further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic. The explosion at the Port of Beirut had devastating immediate and medium-term negative consequences on the local socio-economic environment. The already complicated living conditions of the refugees in the country, together with a reduced ability of the central government and national authorities to provide basic services, created a constant need for humanitarian assistance for the most vulnerable.
