Lebanon

Since the July 2006 War, Relief International has been working in Lebanon to provide immediate relief and long-term support to communities across the country.  RI's important work has continued with the onset of the Syria Crisis in Spring 2011, when RI became an active implementer in the response.  
 
Since this time, RI has implemented programming spanning RI's Centers of Excellence: WASH, Education, Health, and Emergency Response (including NFIs and Cash Distribution).  
 
Currently, RI implements two programs: Health and Nutrition Program in partnership with UNICEF and the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), and the Cash and Communications for Protection (CCP) Program funded by USDOS Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (BPRM).
