Shelter Assistance for the Syrian Refugees living below the poverty line and the provision of basic health care

Since 2011, Lebanon has seen a significant increase in population. This has been due to the influx of Syrian refugees, Palestinian refugees from Syria, and Lebanese people who previously lived in Syria. A population increase of more than 20% over 5 years is placing an enormous strain on infrastructure, the healthcare system, education, the supplies of electricity, water and other utilities, as well as the housing market. In 2015, the number of refugees fluctuated between 1.1 and 1.2 million, which produced change, especially on the market of the cheapest and lowest-standard property. Even though thousands of new flats have been built, rents for low-standard housing are still higher than before to the crisis.

A big majority of refugees slide ever deeper into poverty because of shrinking incomes and the living costs in Lebanon, which far outstrip those in Syria.

Shelter Assistance for the Syrian Refugees living below the poverty line and the provision of basic health care

The project aims to secure the housing for and prevent the eviction of Syrian refugees who live below the poverty line in rented accommodation in northern Lebanon, and to provide the poorest Syrian refugees with access to quality basic medical care.
