Syria and Lebanon are extremely fragile countries and in Syria, the civil war has left 13.4 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.
With the aftermath of conflict, economic deterioration, a fuel crisis, lack of water and limited health services, the living conditions in Syria and Lebanon are rapidly declining.
We rehabilitate water systems, with a focus on upgrading them to solar power, ensuring secured, sustainable access to water for water, sanitation and hygiene needs.
We provide protection services to vulnerable communities, especially gender-based violence services such as psychosocial support, legal referral and case management.
We also improve livelihood opportunities to diversify income and improve the capacity of small-scale farmers.
“ Women are constantly at the frontline when disaster strikes. We are the nurses, the mothers, the wives, the aid workers, the doctors, the cleaners, the business owners, the teachers, the directors. We are also almost always expected to save the day. But we cannot and should not be expected to always save the day. ”
