Even before the world-wide pandemic, Lebanon had been struggling to serve the needs of its people and the influx of refugees from Syria didn’t make the situation better. Before the war in Syria, many in Lebanon went to Syria for work and when the tables turned, resentment and even hostility toward the refugees were heightened.

Skyrocketing healthcare costs are a major stressor on the poor in Lebanon

Even before the world-wide pandemic, Lebanon had been struggling to serve the needs of its people and the influx of refugees from Syria didn’t make the situation better. Before the war in Syria, many in Lebanon went to Syria for work and when the tables turned, resentment and even hostility toward the refugees were heightened. 

Mercy-USA has been operating a mobile medical unit in the mountain valley of Wadi Khalid in the northern part of Lebanon. The population of this under-served area have Lebanese host families and Syrian refugee families living side by side with one thing in common. They all struggle mightily to make ends meet. Skyrocketing healthcare costs are a major stressor on the poor in Lebanon. 

In 2021, our mobile medical unite traveled along the winding roads throughout the valley offering free primary care to all who are there waiting at each stop. Whether it was for high-blood pressure, an injury or any number of childhood illnesses, our doctor and nurse on board were there to diagnose and provide treatment whenever possible to everyone, free of charge. 

Patients reported that the mobile clinic not only saves on the high cost of a doctor visit, it also saves the expensive taxi fare into the city, the expense of medicine and other costs associated, which made affording clothes for the children, or buying food, for example, easier.

Your gift will provide
life-saving relief to children and their families.
