Background on Syrian and Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

 

In Figures:

  • Over 1 million Syrian refugees have sheltered in Lebanon.

Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

DSPR Lebanon began working with Palestinian refugees from 1948 and has incorporated Syrian refugees into its programme from their first arrival in the country.  Education is a strong emphasis of its work.  It runs a well-regarded preschool, English language classes and tutorial classes for Syrian refugee students.  For the last three years it has organized groups of secondary students to return to Damascus to sit their brevet and baccalaureate exams.  Careful negotiations with the Lebanese government guarantee their right to return after the exams, something denied other refugees leaving the country.  DSPR runs vocational training programmes and provides cash assistance to refugees as funds allow.
