What we do

UNICEF’s work in Lebanon

UNICEF started to work in Lebanon in 1948 and established its office in 1950. For more than 70 years we’ve been working closely with the Government of Lebanon, other UN agencies, international and local NGOs, universities, and more than 100 partners to meet the needs of disadvantaged children in Lebanon.

The conflict in Syria has had a huge impact on Lebanon. Since its onset in 2011, UNICEF’s response has not only expanded year by year but also changed in nature, focusing on both refugees and the host population.

Responding to life-saving needs and ensuring equal access to quality public services, the impact of our work is felt in every aspect and every sphere of society.
