Poverty In Lebanon
At least twenty-eight per cent of Lebanon’s population is classed as ‘poor’, with eight per cent deemed to be living in extreme poverty. At least 350,000 of them are Syrian refugees. Poverty rates in Beirut are below six per cent, but are as high as 53 per cent in the North of the country. Official studies have identified 29 per cent of Bekaa’s population as living below the poverty line. Poverty is also prevalent in the South, as well as in Nabatieh and Mouth Lebanon.
From Conflict To Poverty
Humanitarian aid was needed in Lebanon before the Syrian crisis, as a result of conflict. It is now needed more than ever. Most refugees live in tents, work sites or unfurnished houses. They need food, improved water supplies and better sanitation.
