Syrian Refugee Shelter Work

We offer accommodation and shelter to refugees who are in extreme need of support. 100s of refugees benefited from this project in Turkey and Lebanon.

One of these was centres Hope Centre which was launched in January 2018 in Lebanon in response to the ongoing crisis. A very important project as there are now almost a million Syrian refugees living in Lebanon including over 300,000 children. This means that one in four people in Lebanon is a Syrian Refugee. With limited funds if any at all it is almost impossible to find a safe place for refugee families to live as well as providing food, clothes and education for their children.

Our volunteers from Glasgow, Livingston and Edinburgh traveled out to open the centre and were welcomed by some of the beautiful children. Volunteers described this as a crucial housing project which provides vital support as without this, the only other option is to move back into camps or live in extremely poor conditions.
It housed 21 families in the Hope Centre including over 40 children. The residents include widows, single mothers, orphans, elderly and some with ongoing medical needs.

This is one of many shelter/ accommodation projects that World Care Foundation undertook for refugees.
