22 Nov 2006 description

The Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) has been, since 1995 and by governmental mandate, the most important provider of first aid and medical ambulance services in the country. During the month-long hostilities which devastated Lebanon between mid-July and mid-August, it faced its biggest challenge ever: responding to the emergency needs of a population of nearly four million people, of whom nearly 800,000 fled to other parts of Lebanon and thus became internally displaced. Nearly 200,000 people fled to Syria.

Some 5,000 LRC volunteers and all the staff were immediately mobilized.

Displaced Lebanese in Syria began packing their belongings as soon as the United Nations-sponsored cessation of hostilities went into effect at 08:00 local time on Monday 14 August 2006. If the trend continues at its current pace, most of the 160,000 Lebanese guests (as the Syrians like to call them) will be back home within a few days.

The cease-fire was only hours old when hundreds of cars began leaving Syria to return to Lebanon via four border crossing points. Syrian Arab Red Crescent Society (SARCS) volunteers were present at all crossing points.
