in MIDLE EAST by

The Lebanese government plans to receive $ 2.68 billion in humanitarian assistance and investment in the country’s infrastructure and public services as part of the Lebanese Crisis Response Plan (LCRP). The LCRP 2018 package was announced on Thursday and funds will be used to provide humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, who are around 1.9 million, to Lebanese refugees and vulnerable Palestinians, as well as to invest in Lebanon’s infrastructure, public services and local economy. Over 123 national and international partners have pledged financial support to avoid a sharp deterioration of the country’s humanitarian conditions and infrastructure and, following the renewal of the commitment, the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, Philippe Lazzarini, said that preserving the stability of the Lebanon means maintaining tolerance, diversity and stability in the region.
