Winter in Lebanon is harsh, especially in the high elevations of Mount Lebanon, in the North, and the Bekaa where nearly two-thirds of all 870,000 refugees are living. Many live in accommodation that is not insulated from the elements in informal settlements (IS), unfinished buildings, garages, work-sites or warehouses.

The inter-agency winterization programme targeted up to 60% of all refugees from Syria (including Palestinians), Lebanese returnees and some vulnerable host community families, with: (a) support to make shelters more weatherproof; (b) non-food items (NFI), such as blankets, children’s clothing, and in some cases stoves; and (c) money to purchase heating fuel for the poorest households and schools to promote attendance during the winter months.
