Contexte

The Syrian crisis has resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of civilians to neighbouring countries (Lebanon: about 278’000 registered and pending registration by UNHCR as per 13th February, 2013). According to UNHCR estimates, around 40’000 refugees are living in the under-developed Akkar Region (95% of them live in private accommodation and 5% in collective shelters). The financial burden on individual host families and communities is heavy and resources of the refugees are meagre.

Objectifs

To ensure decent shelter for Syrian refugees by improving capacities and socio-economic conditions for Lebanese families and communities hosting displaced and Syrian refugees in Akkar region, North Lebanon.

    Résultats

    Principaux résultats attendus:  

    Individual Lebanese family hosting capacities was improved and feelings of burden of Syrian families on their hosts was decreased through support to 1’300 host families who received financial support totaling CHF 830’000 (contribution for hosting and livelihoods) over a period of 6 months. This has stabilised the refugee population of 10'000 Syrian refugees (around 1'740 Syrian families) in private accommodation, with less than 10% further displacement. The challenge of planning and implementing longer-term community development projects in the pilot phase was supplemented by small actions that benefited 9 municipalities/villages totaling CHF 110’000.
