Community-centered protection services for most vulnerable populations Monday 12 March 2018

Tabitha Relief and Development aims to join efforts with other humanitarian agencies to better advocate for legal, physical and material safety. Tabitha will be working in partnership with Oxfam and Alef, on a project funded by The European Regional Development and Protection Programme (RDPP).

Through this 4 months project, Tabitha will work on enhancing legal safety by providing legal counselling and legal administrative follow up to 20 vulnerable refugees or host communities, and improving legal knowledge regarding civil and penal laws in Lebanon for 96 refugees.

Additionally, Tabitha aims to enhance protection outcomes of children through the provision of psychosocial support (50 children with structured PSS and 30 children with focused PSS). Tabitha will also aim to enhance physical safety by providing 32 Case Management services for special Child Protection cases through referrals from the PSS program and the community, including mediating with property owners and other influencing parties for eviction cases.

Moreover, Tabitha will enhance material safety by providing Case Management services for the abovementioned 32 cases, including social counseling and improvement of access to information on appropriate education and healthcare services.

Further to that, Tabitha’s partner, MSD, will mobilize its field units within different areas in order to outreach to the most vulnerable populations and provide them with the needed legal and protection services or referrals. Thus, MSD will take in charge the legal aspect, counselling and follow-up while Tabitha will conduct the PSS activities and case management.
