Lebanon’s socio-economic situation continues to deteriorate, with the cost of basic needs exponentially rising as a result of the deep economic and financial crisis, exacerbated by the impact of the pandemic.

Last year, as restrictions across Lebanon were implemented, hundreds of thousands of people lost their jobs. The price of basic food and water increased, which has negatively impacted the lives of millions nationwide.

After the devastating explosion in Beirut on August 4th, the need for first aid and hospital assistance has only risen as thousands have been injured as a result of the blast. Hospitals in Beirut were recovering from a surge in coronavirus cases, and now there are concerns the virus could spread further as people flood into hospitals.


In response to the explosion, IDRF is providing emergency medical assistance to affected victims in Beirut. Our services include first aid support and food parcels for those most in need in the Beirut area.

In Bekaa valley, IDRF is providing families with food parcels to vulnerable families in Lebanon to last them one month. Food parcel contains staples such as rice, bulgur, lentils, chickpeas, olive and vegetable oil, sugar, salt, tea, and more.

Ongoing problems such as the cholera and polio outbreak, poor hygiene conditions and lack of necessary equipment have created a massive burden on existing Yemeni health institutions.

As we focus on preventing the spread of COVID-19, our global communities’ response must support and encompass the needs of all populations, including those forced to flee their homes around the world.

The violence in Syria has caused millions to flee their homes. Referring to the statistics of the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) more than 6.6 million Syrians have been displaced to date.
