Emergency Food Assistance
Implementing Partner: Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development/Middle East Revive and Thrive

People Served: 30,000

Timeline: 2021 - 2022

World Renew is supporting Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD) with a continued humanitarian food assistance response in Syria. This project is part of the Syrian crisis responses response Foodgrains Bank and members have been supporting with partners which is currently in its tenth year.

The need for ongoing food assistance remains great. High prices, inflation and few employment opportunities, combined with massive displacement caused by the ongoing conflict are contributing to continued high levels of vulnerability among Syrians. Food availability is also limited due to economic sanctions and reduced production capacity caused by drought, fuel shortages and natural disasters. As a result, families are increasingly adopting more harmful coping mechanisms and taking on debt.

In response, this project aims to decrease the vulnerability of 3,462 households (approximately 17,300 individuals) per month by increasing immediate food consumption and reducing negative coping strategies. It is expected that the assistance will reach up to 6,018 households (approximately 30,000 individuals) over the course of the project.

The monthly food basket, provided between July – March, contains rice, bulgur, spaghetti, lentils, chickpeas, vegetable oil, olive oil, sugar, salt, canned meal, tea and tomato sauce.
