NORWAC in Lebanon


There are 270 000 Paletinian Refugees in Lebanon

NORWAC’s work in Lebanon began in 1983. Since then we have had continues presence, primarily working with health-related projects. The work is based on a close collaboration with local Lebanese and Palestinian NGOs, and the target groups are Palestinian refugees and underprivileged Lebanese. However, in light of the influx of large groups of displaced Syrians, certain projects also target Syrian refugees. Facilitating cooperation across sectarian divide is an integral part of NORWACs work in Lebanon. NORWAC’s partners in Lebanon are listed at the bottom of this page.
