Palestinian refugees started arriving in Lebanon over 70 years ago, as a result of the 1948 ‘Nakba’. Today, nearly half a million Palestinians live in refugee camps, almost totally dependent on aid for their survival.
The Syrian civil war has resulted in millions of innocent lives being devastated and made homeless. These people have had no choice but to flee from the violence, leaving behind their homes and livelihoods. Since the onset of the Syrian civil war in 2011, over one million Syrian refugees have fled to Lebanon.
Muslim Charity has been active on the ground in Lebanon supporting Palestinian and Syrian refugees, and needy Lebanese families, through emergency food, medical aid, supporting orphans and widows as well as schools and hospitals.
