JRS Lebanon supports refugees from Syria and Palestine who are living in the Bar Elias and Baalbek regions of Lebanon. Last year, funding helped these communities cope with the harsh winter weather by providing them with blankets.

JRS MENA and Covid-19

During the Covid-19 pandemic, JRS MENA has distributed emergency food and sanitation supplies to mitigate the risk of infection and to enable households who were left without the means to earn money to feed their families. Psychosocial support and education programmes were run via online platforms including WhatsApp during the lockdown so that refugees could still access them during the period when physical distancing was necessary.
