Refugee crisis Syria: help for displaced persons in the Lebanon

A video coverage by Daniel Andrei

by Lisa Wolff,  2019/05/31

Since 2011 Syria has been torn apart by civil war. Millions of people had to leave their homes and to look for refuge in their neighboring countries. In the Lebanon alone now live about two million Syrians. With approximately four million Lebanese inhabitants this means that about one-third of the population has a refugee background.

humedica is engaged in the Lebanon since the beginning of this humanitarian crises. Its aid focusses on the medical care of the people as well as on information campaigns and psycho-social assistance. At first the German Foreign Office supported the relief measures, since November 2018 the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development has taken over the funding.

"We appreciate very much that thanks to the backing of our partners we could assist the people in the Lebanon from the very beginning." explains Sophie Günster, who has managed the project for humedica in both phases. "As the crisis has not ended yet, we were already planning to continue our support even after the emergency relief aid. Now, we are able to do so."

The images of Daniel Andrei illustrate how much this aid is still needed. He visited the humedica project in the Lebanon and accompanied the everyday lives of our colleagues on site. The stories of the helpers and the destinies of the people in the refugee camps talk for themselves. Please stay part of this important relief work. Thank you so much!
