Following the Syrian crisis which to date has produced over 4 million refugees, COOPI intervened in 2013 in Lebanon to support the Syrian population, above all women and children, fleeing the conflict.
There are currently over 1 million refugees in Lebanon. To provide them with aid, COOPI has distributed stoves, blankets and clothes; it has set up mobile clinics for basic healthcare, epidemiological surveillance and vaccinations for children. In addition, since the risk of contracting water-borne infections and diseases spread by insects and rodents is high in such contexts, we have run campaigns promoting good hygiene, installed water tanks and built or improved existing toilet facilities.
Our aim is not only to respond to a temporary crisis but also to reduce social tensions and favour the socio-economic integration of the refugees. To this aim, we have rolled out a Cash for Work programme that involves requalification of several public spaces: offering the opportunity of a job to Syrian refugees in Lebanon, not only allows them to earn money to support their families, but also gives them back their dignity.
