Humanitarian context

Lebanon has welcomed nearly one and a half million Syrian refugees since the beginning of the conflict in 2011. About 70% live below the poverty line, scattered in rural areas, in extremely precarious conditions.

This situation also weighs on the resources of the host population. 
Nearly half of Syrian refugees are children, according to UNICEF.

They grow up largely without schooling.


Our actions

SIF implements programs for refugees and the vulnerable host population in the Beirut and Mount Lebanon region.
