Duration of mission
PUI has been present in Lebanon since 1996, when it launched an emergency response operation following the Lebanese-Israeli conflict and has since maintained a significant commitment to the country. As of 2001, a permanent presence was established in Lebanon with a diverse panel of activities ranging from emergency response to recovery and reconstruction. During the last fifteen years, PUI has tackled the needs emerging from conflicts (2001, 2006 and 2007), protracted humanitarian crisis (Palestinian Refugees camps) and chronic underdevelopment (in the South and the North of Lebanon). Since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in April 2011, and in order to provide life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable conflict-affected population, PUI has developed a response to the refugee crisis.
A multi-sectorial portfolio of activities (Health, WASH, Food Security & Livelihoods, Infrastructure, Shelter rehabilitation and emergency response, Protection) is addressing refugee and host population vulnerabilities by facilitating individuals and communities to achieve respect for rights in safety and dignity. PUI is also seeking more sustainable and cost-efficient modalities of implementation, mainly by building partnerships with local organisations and existing public entities which will contribute to bridge the humanitarian assistance delivered to refugees with specific community support projects to strengthen the social cohesion between communities.
FOCUS on REBAHS project: the REBAHS project aims at Reducing Economic Barriers to Access to Health Services, and is based on subsidization of quality primary Healthcare in a network of PHCCs. Implemented in a consortium with IMC and FPSC, this project is funded by the European Union under MADAD grants. This project aims at delivering quality package of care to the most deprived populations of Lebanon (hosts and refugees) who cannot afford it.
