report Lebanon Support

Your Excellency Mr. Ban Ki Moon, United Nations Secretary General,

Lebanon hosts the highest number of refugees per capita in the world, with as many as 1.5 million Syrian refugees and over 300,000 Palestine Refugees currently living in the country. Five years into the Syrian crisis, the living conditions of both refugees and Lebanese host communities are continuing to deteriorate. This crisis, which is increasingly complex and protracted, presents significant challenges for humanitarian action in a country which has been facing recurring emergencies for the past 40 years.
