Our hearts ache as we see violence and conflict continue in the Middle East, with impacts reverberating throughout the entire region—including Lebanon.

Communities in Lebanon were already struggling with astronomical inflation driving families into extreme poverty. The country also hosts around 1.5 million refugees from Syria, many of them living in informal settlements.  

Now, unrest in the Middle East has increased clashes in South Lebanon and in Syria, putting innocent civilians in harm’s way, and displacing around 89,000 people near the Lebanon-Israel border. The conflict has also further exacerbated the economic crisis in Lebanon, making it harder for families already living in poverty to survive. 

Today, your generosity will provide urgently needed support for vulnerable families—from trauma care to warm clothes for winter, as well as helping children get an education and reclaim their childhood.
