The project’s aim is to improve the living conditions of 800 Syrian families (about 4500 people) forced by Lebanese military forces to deploy their tents in completely isolated and lacking services areas in Masharia al Qaa territory (close to the Syrian border). The aim is to implement activities favouring access to water and the improvement of living, health and hygiene conditions within informal camps, where the Syrian families currently live. Moreover, distributions of kits for the restoration of tents, soil insulation and waterproofing are foreseen, in addition to water tank supply, connection to wells and lavatory supply.
