Islamic Relief is responding to a desperate humanitarian crisis in Lebanon where there is a rapid socio-economic decline, made worse by the devastating explosion in Beirut in 2020.
Poverty is rife in Lebanon, as millions of people lose their jobs and are unable to find work in a country gripped by one of the most severe economic crises of this century.
People are are struggling to provide food for their families, and to access basic services. In unemployed men particularly, this has led to low self-esteem.
Children are also being deprived of their right to attend school.
Concerns are growing about criminal behaviour, with fears that Lebanese youth are resorting to stealing to provide for their desperate families.
