The start package will vary according to the families’ individual needs, but they may include:
• Mattresses and blankets
• Kitchen utensils (pots, pans, plates, cups and cutlery etc.)
• Baby/children’s accessories (diapers, lotions, soaps etc.)
• Women’s hygienic accessories (soaps, sanitary pads, cloth etc.)
• Food packages (meat, wheat, beans, oil, sugar, salt etc.)
Status on the refugee situation in Lebanon
By January 2014, more than one million Syrian refugees have sought refuge in Lebanon. Approximately 350,000 people receive relief aid and support from the Danish Refugee Council every month. Danish Refugee Council has provided assistance to Syrian refugees in Lebanon since March 2011, when the conflict broke out. Lebanon is currently the organisation’s largest operational land.
