Forgotten Crises: Bringing Lebanon #IntoFocus

Dear reader,

Over 324 million people around the world needed humanitarian assistance last year. Most of them were affected by crises that hardly made the news. Too often international attention – and support – focuses on conflicts that grab headlines, while other crises fall off the radar.

Lebanon suffers from these “forgotten crises”: 80 per cent live in poverty and two million people face food insecurity.

To put Lebanon back #IntoFocus, we have joined 30 humanitarian organisations including Johanniter, Aktion gegen den Hunger and Care Germany in a widespread campaign. On social media and through various activities we shed light on millions of people in countries such as Bangladesh, Lebanon and South Sudan who need immediate humanitarian assistance for their basic needs.

Our peacebuilding work in Lebanon addresses the root causes of these crises. We bring people together to speak about their grievances and connect with each other to formulate urgently needed political reforms and a vision for the future.

Please help us transform underlying conflicts and work towards a peaceful future for the country.
