The European Commission will give an additional €43 million in humanitarian aid to support Syrian refugees and their host communities in Lebanon.
The funding will help prepare the most vulnerable refugees for the approaching winter. It will provide assistance for shelter rehabilitation, heating as well as health care support for some of the most vulnerable refugee families, which will allow them access to secondary health care in hospitals.
Lebanon is home to the highest refugee per capita rate in the world and comes second only to Turkey in terms of absolute numbers of Syrian refugees.
