Month in Focus: Lebanon - Lives ruined by the conflict

19 August 2015

Since the Syrian conflict began, over four years ago, more than one million people have come to Lebanon seeking refuge. 

The governorate of Akkar, in the north of the country, has received most of the refugees, who are living in informal camps. 

Since it opened in May, the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) clinic in Abde is running to full capacity. The staff are seeing on average 100 patients a day, Lebanese as well as Syrian since the problem of accessing healthcare is not limited to refugees.
