Urban shelter and community stabilisation in Lebanon | Emergency Appeal 2015

Since 2011, the Syrian conflict has devastated communities across the country causing the displacement of 8 million Syrians and prompting the exodus of more than 4 million to neighboring countries and Western Europe.

Lebanon has more than 1 million Syrians and over 400,000 long term refugees from Palestine now living among a national population of 4 million. Lebanon now has the highest per capita concentration of refugees in the world. 

Habitat for Humanity Lebanon seeks USD$1 million for an Urban Shelter & Community Stabilization Project to improve the living conditions for Syrian and Palestinian refugees as well as the most affected and deprived members of the Lebanese host communities. The proposed intervention will rehabilitate and weatherproof buildings and upgrade WASH for 7,500 people.
