Focus on Lebanon

In 2021, the national currency lost 90% of its value, sending the country into a financial and economic crisis. The impact on civilians has been catastrophic, leaving more than 80% of people without access to basic needs including food, water, health care, and education. Fuel shortages have also caused widespread electricity blackouts, leaving large portions of the country in the dark for up to 23 hours per day. In turn, hospitals, schools, and small local businesses are struggling to operate. To add, Lebanon plays host to a large population of refugees. Currently, it’s home to nearly 900,000 Syrian refugees as well as 174,000 Palestinian refugees. In response to the current crisis, the government has provided little to no support to families struggling to cope. Inadequate policy responses have left vulnerable people to fight for themselves.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Lebanon

Islamic Relief has been working in Lebanon since the war in 2006. Our goal is to provide emergency and long-term aid not only to residents of Lebanon, but Syrian and Palestinian refugees alike. 

A few of our interventions include:

  • Food aid
  • Access to healthcare and education
  • Emergency aid for families affected by disasters such as the Beirut explosion 
  • Humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees including basic non-food items and access to psychosocial support 
  • Winter aid for refugee and host communities alike

We Need YOUR Help

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts in Lebanon, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA’s Lebanon fund may serve urgent or long-term programs in Lebanon for vulnerable Lebanese or for refugees, or for Lebanese refugees living in other countries.
