80% of Lebanon now lives in poverty

Lebanon is once again reeling from a catastrophe and our field office has already deployed first responders to assist the authorities.

Political inaction and the devaluation of the Lira, Lebanon's official currency, have contributed to a growing wave of anger, frustration and desperation. The crisis, combined with the coronavirus lockdown, has put at least half of the Lebanese population under the poverty line. Earlier this year, the World Bank projected that at least 50% of the country would become poor -- up from nearly 30% last October.

Lebanon declared a state of emergency in an attempt to control the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19). A national lockdown was implemented, making refugee and marginalised families even more vulnerable.

Nearly every day, the snowball effect of Lebanon's economic meltdown brings new developments. Prices have surged -- the situation is verging on hyper-inflation -- and fuel shortages have plunged the country into darkness, with power outages lasting almost 24 hours. Several individuals took their own lives, with local media reports suggesting that the suicides were linked to economic hardship caused by the crisis.
