Agency: Popular Aid for Relief and Development (PARD)

This project will enhance the living conditions of 400 refugee families from Syria by providing them with hygiene kits and health education, each of which are essential resources for adapting to their new conditions after having fled to Lebanon. The hygiene kits, which contain essential sanitation and health items, serve as the primary health care for these families. As the crisis in Syria is severe and ongoing, the kits will be purchased and distributed as quickly as possible. The benefits will be both immediate, allowing the families to handle immediate health problems and easing pressure on their hosts, as well as long-term, ensuring disease preventions and proper child development.
