Communication Strategy Development Service

Overview

CARE established its presence in Lebanon in 2006 and has been responding to the Syrian Crisis since late 2012. Among CARE's key imperatives is putting people it serves first through implementing cutting edge programming in areas where it operates. CARE currently carries out activities in Beirut, Mount Lebanon, Akkar, North Lebanon, South Lebanon, and the Beqaa Valley. CARE implements both emergency and development projects contributing to livelihood, food security, protection, gender, shelter, and water, sanitation, and hygiene. It targets the most vulnerable people and populations, pertaining to both host communities and refugees.

In 2022, CARE developed LINKS online platform that is currently the only all-inclusive collaboration and coordination tool available to People in Need, local service providers, and resource providers. In this regard, it plays a critical role in coordinating humanitarian activities and providing information on available services and gaps.

CARE is currently seeking to develop a long-term comprehensive communication strategy aiming to achieve LINKS online platform’s goals. This includes producing high-quality animated videos, data visualization, refining and optimizing communication processes, and efficiently connecting to relevant stakeholders.
