To respond to the refugee crisis, State/PRM provided more than $276 million to UN agencies, NGOs, and other relief organizations in FY 2020, bringing total State/PRM humanitarian assistance to Lebanon to more than $2 billion since FY 2012.
In FY 2020, USAID/BHA continued to distribute emergency food assistance to refugee populations and supported communities affected by COVID-19 and the August 4 explosions, bringing total USAID/BHA assistance since FY 2012 to nearly $712 million.
