UNHCR Lebanon at a glance

The deep economic crisis in Lebanon has exacerbated the situation of both Lebanese and refugees. Like all communities in Lebanon, refugees are deeply affected by the compounded crises and critical situation affecting the country and are making difficult choices to survive every single day, including skipping meals, not seeking urgent medical treatment, and sending children to work in-stead of school. 

UNHCR works closely with the Government of Lebanon and numerous other national and international partners in providing protection and assistance to refugees and host communities, as well as stateless persons.
