Highlights of the week
The number of registered Syrians with UNHCR and the High Relief Commission (HRC) is 4,840. Since last week, there has been an increase of some 100 persons mostly due the fact that a number of displaced Syrians had crossed into Lebanon earlier but only recently approached our Office.
Mobile clinics of UNHCR’s implementing partner International Medical Corps (IMC) circulated among the displaced in collective shelters where IMC doctors provided medical examinations to those in need. In addition, and as part of the objective to improve the health environment of the displaced, IMC organized awareness sessions on the symptoms and ways of transmission of the influenza, proper use of medication and children’s safely from indoor and outdoor accidents.
