In Lebanon, World Vision has been implementing long-term development programs since 1975. In the last four decades we have focused on supporting vulnerable communities across the country, and we are continuing to develop and expand this work. Because of our experience in responding to emergencies, dating back to our humanitarian activities during the 1975-1990 Civil War, World Vision was able to respond quickly when the Syria crisis began in 2011, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee to the safety of Lebanon.
World Vision remains committed to supporting the Lebanese citizens, as well as Syrian refugees. To achieve this, we plan to implement programmes, invest in social cohesion, and intensify our work with local partners in the areas of: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Food Security, Basic Assistance and Livelihood, Child Protection, specifically in the areas of Child Labour and Violence against Children, and Early Childhood Care and Development.
