Fleeing the Violence in Syria: Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

MSF’s objective in carrying out this study was to better understand the conditions facing Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. With the aim of adapting the organisation’s response to the evolving situation, teams collected information and testimonies specifically focused on the health situation of refugees and influencing factors such as shelter, sanitation and their journey from Syria.The study was conducted in June 2012 in Saadniyel, Jdeide and Aarsal (Bekaa Valley), Tripoli as well as in several villages in Wadi Khaled, including the so-called ‘collective shelters.’ A significant number of Syrian families continue to live in these shelters – normally old schools, mosques or abandoned buildings – due to an increasing shortage of proper accommodation.
