Humanitarian situation, needs and consequences:

As the Syrian Crisis is in its seven year, the number of Syrians seeking refuge in other countries has reached an unprecedented scale. With more than 250,000 people killed, 1.2 million injured and 6.5 million people displaced, there are now 13.5 million vulnerable people inside Syria alone. Over 4.8 million refugees from Syria have fled to neighbouring countries particularly Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt After Turkey, Lebanon is the second host country for Syrian refugees with 1.5 million refugees for an overall population of less than 4.5 million (Source: LCRP 2018). Prior to this crisis, Lebanon was already hosting 300,000 Palestinian refugees and 1.5 million of the Lebanese people are considered vulnerable; the pressure on the Lebanese government and local population is very high.

An unprecedented number of civilians (refugees and host communities) are affected by the protracted Syrian crisis, in terms of increased impoverishment and vulnerability. Syrian refugees in particular are exposed to constant violation of the Humanitarian laws, with little perspective for them to reach a sustainable solution (resettlement to a third country, local integration or return to country of origin). There are not located in camps but scattered in areas inhabited by impoverished and vulnerable Lebanese communities further stretching limited or non-existent sources of income and public services at the local level.

The health system in Lebanon is dominated by a private sector and an active non-government sector which supports the limited public system (approximately 200 Public Health Care Centres (PHCCs) are available to the Syrian and disadvantaged Lebanese population). WHO highlights that ‘overall, limited funds are available for ensuring equitable provision of health services to meet essential health needs at the primary, secondary and tertiary health care levels.’ According to UNHCR, primary health care is the core of all health interventions in Lebanon, with cost being the most concerning barrier reported among Syrians. Syrians primarily seek care for infectious and communicable diseases (40%), chronic conditions (14%), gynaecological conditions (12%) and injuries (9%). A lack of quality and affordable healthcare in Lebanon often leads to further debt, impoverishment and vulnerability for both refugees and vulnerable Lebanese.

Our actions in the field:

Present in the country since 1996, PUI has a long experience in assisting conflict affected populations in the South. Since 2012, PUI has been actively involved in the Lebanon emergency response to the Syrian crisis with presence in the North (Akkar), Mount Lebanon and South (Saida) of Lebanon.

In 2018-2019, PUI aims to reinforce the ability of each vulnerable community to become self-reliant and resilient to crisis, through 2 programmes orientations :

  • Humanitarian Assistance Programme: to provide a protection-based humanitarian material assistance and services for the most vulnerable refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian crisis, based on the targeting system and relevant vulnerabilities monitoring. .
  • Resilience Programme: to develop and strengthen access to social and community infrastructures (schools, health facilities) and support household-level economic survival and well-being with regards to specific poor and vulnerable groups .
