In 2015, NRC s operations in Lebanon provided assistance to more than 300,000 beneficiaries
Although Lebanon is not a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention, it has the highest number of refugees per capita in the world. The estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees and 310,000 Palestinian refugees amount to over a quarter of Lebanon's total population.
NRC opened our offices in Lebanon in 2006 and through our Lebanon programme, we support everyone affected by displacement refugees as well as host communities. We help them fight for their rights and overcome the everyday hardships they face. We focus on providing legal assistance and shelter, and advocating for refugee rights inside the country, regionally, and internationally. NRC has offices located in Beirut, Tyre, Tal Abbas and Zahle. Because refugees in Lebanon live side-by-side with the Lebanese, we also work to serve the local communities hosting displaced people. In all NRC projects, our experts work together to maximise the impact of our activities.
