School Evacuation Drill in Ein el-Helweh

11 July 2019

In the Palestinian refugee camp of Ein el-Helweh, schools are often caught in the crossfire when violence erupts.

In the Marj Ben Amer School, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) teamed up with the Lebanese Red Cross and UNRWA to train the school’s staff, teachers and students on how to safely evacuate in case clashes erupt. The ICRC also put up signs across other schools that are on the frontline to guide students and staff members during any sudden evacuation.
