Lebanon

Since the beginning of the civil war in Syria, 4.8 million Syrians have fled the country, about 1.2 million to the small neighbouring country Lebanon.

No other country has taken in more refugees in relation to its own population. In cooperation with partner organisations, AWO International is implementing a humanitarian aid project for refugees.

Healthcare-services for refugees with disabilities in Lebanon

Refugees with disabilities have inadequate medical care in Lebanon, which leads to considerable limitations in everyday life. To remedy this situation, we are supporting a mobile clinic in the Bekaa region together with Volkshilfe Austria. Covid-19 prevention measures are also carried out.

Including health care for Syrian war refugees in Lebanon

The refugees in Lebanon are still suffering greatly from the effects of the war in Syria, which has now lasted nine years. Basic medical care is particularly at risk for disabled refugees. AWO International supports a mobile clinic that gives disadvantaged people access to basic medical care, prostheses, physio- and psychotherapy.
