UN reassesses which Syrian refugees in Lebanon will receive aid

Every year, UN surveys Syrian refugee families in Lebanon to decide who need aid payments and who may survive without.


    United Nations cash provides a vital lifeline for 180,000 Syrian refugee families living in Lebanon. But that's only 30 percent of the refugee families; there are not enough funds to cover them all.

    The World Food Programme has to reassess the situation of all registered refugee families annually and make the decision to redirect its aid towards those who need it the most.
