Crisis response for unregistered Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Lebanon

Dorcas has been addressing the needs of the refugees with food, household goods and winterization products such as fuel for heaters since 2013. This programme is partly financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, World Food Programme (WFP)  and  funds and donations from people in the Netherlands. Not only Syrian but Iraqi refugees, too, are looking for a safe place to live in Lebanon, a country which already has a high level of poverty. Relief will also be provided to a small group of very vulnerable Lebanese.
