This influx of Syrian refugees has further strained the country’s economy and infrastructure and this is particularly felt in the health sector.
Despite the efforts of the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health in supporting primary and secondary healthcare for refugees, the cost of consultations, laboratory tests, and medication remains a barrier for a significant number of refugees.
This reality has prompted us to providing medical assistance to Syrian refugees and vulnerable communities in Lebanon.
We work in the north of Lebanon, the Bekaa valley, south Beirut and Saida, offering free, high quality primary healthcare.
Our teams provide treatment for acute and chronic diseases, reproductive services, mental health support and health promotion activities. Teams also run mother and child health centres across the country.
