Our work in Lebanon

The ICRC has carried out its humanitarian work in Lebanon through several periods of armed conflict, including the 1975–1990 civil war. Currently we are helping to meet the rapidly growing needs of people who have fled war and other violence across the region and of the communities hosting them.

Our work with the Lebanese Red Cross

In the regional delegation, cooperation work is based above all on providing support to the National Society to develop its capacities. Cooperation is an active part of the humanitarian response before, during and after emergencies or conflicts. Among our most important activities are responding to migration in the region, training first aid teams that work in dangerous areas and delicate situations and strengthening accountability, transparency and financial sustainability mechanisms.
