Lebanon

CARE’s work in Lebanon

CARE began working in Lebanon in 2006, to help meet the needs of people affected by conflict. We initially worked through Lebanese partner organisations, and then through our own country office to address the needs of refugees and their host communities. Refugees, most of them fleeing the conflict in Syria, account for almost a quarter of the population in Lebanon. Most refugee families live in unfurnished houses, work sites or tents. We work with local authorities to improve water supply and sanitation infrastructure for refugees and host communities, and we meet their most basic and pressing needs.

 

CARE's impact

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

Our aims

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
