What We Do

The LCC is now targeting 8,500 highly socio-economically vulnerable refugee households to directly benefit approximately 42,500 Syrian refugees living in Lebanon by empowering them to make their own decisions in meeting their basic needs in a dignified and flexible way. Targeted households receive multipurpose cash assistance of $175 on a monthly basis to meet essential food and non-food needs.
Beneficiaries focus their spending overwhelmingly on basic necessities, particularly housing, food, and healthcare. From extensive monitoring, it is clear families are spending only on their most urgent needs. An increased sense of security and stability was also reported as a result of the LCC assistance. Households also stated that making their own choices about how to use their assistance improved their self-esteem. Children of LCC beneficiary households benefited directly from the assistance by having more of their needs met and feeling more secure in terms of food and shelter. Despite the impact on meeting basic needs, most refugee families continue to face gaps and are often unable to prioritize additional needs such as education.
