Imagine being a woman isolated in a foreign country and at risk of violence.
Fortunately, women who find themselves in this situation in Lebanon are able to find refuge at Oaktree, a women’s shelter.
Oaktree reopened recently after refurbishment work to ensure it is a comfortable, safe and welcoming place for women and their children.
Most of the women are escaping gender-based violence either resulting from domestic violence, human trafficking, or the increased likelihood of violence due to being a refugee.

Plusieurs attentats suicide menés par des kamikazes ont coûté la vie à au moins cinq personnes dans un village à majorité chrétienne de l'est du Liban, une région troublée en raison de sa proximité avec la Syrie en guerre.
Une première série d'explosions s'est produite avant l'aube à Al-Qaa, un village situé dans la région de la Bekaa, à quelques kilomètres de la frontière syrienne, faisant cinq morts et quinze blessés.

Two waves of suicide bombings struck a mainly Christian village near Lebanon's border with war-ravaged Syria on Monday, killing and wounding several people before dawn and in the evening.

Press release of 22.06.2016 | Berlin – Every child in Lebanon, and that includes every refugee child, should be able to go to school. Germany and Poland will support the Lebanese education ministry in achieving this ambitious goal. That was agreed between BMZ State Secretary Friedrich Kitschelt and Undersecretary of State Joanna Wronecka at today's Polish-German government consultations.
The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) has been working in Lebanon since 2004 and at the peak of the emergency between 2011 and 2013 DRC scaled up staff and programmes to meet the needs. As a consequence of reduced funding the Danish Refugee Council introduced a staff downsizing plan in 2014.
Between 2011 and 2013, DRC was one of the most active organisations supporting the Lebanese government in responding to the Syria crisis, with a human resource capacity that was scaled up in order to meet the needs of the response.
Context: The agricultural sector in Lebanon, and particularly the milk and dairy sector, is a major source of income for poor rural communities. This is especially the case for households who do not own land. Almost 60 percent of livestock farmers in Lebanon depend on dairy as their main source of living and over 70 percent of dairy farmers are categorized as poor or very poor.

Social Stability partners provide ongoing support to municipalities to strengthen their capacity to mitigate tensions created by the socio-economic shock of the crisis.
Part of this support includes implementing small (community support) and medium (basic services) projects to alleviate resource pressure and provide tangible bene ts to local communities.
While CSPs and BS projects can cover a wide range of interventions, from equipment of public institutions to provision of garbage trucks or construction of sport facilities, they all have the following components:
22 June 2016 – The United Nations head of humanitarian operations for Lebanon today urged the international community to develop a comprehensive approach of support, or risk the implosion of a country that is vital to the regional dynamics.
