The LRCS is mandated in Libanon to provide EMS services throughout the country and started in 2013 with other support in response of the influx of Syrian refugees. This winter has seen the worst weather conditions since some 15 years, with temperatures dropping below zero and heavy winds. The refugees from Syria, many of whom are living in makeshift shelter insufficiently protected against harsh conditions, are seriously affected.
This project is an contribution to Libanese Red Cross Society to implement winter situation activities in Lebanon, to provide urgent assistance to Syrian refugees, and other affected.
