Refugees in Jordan and Lebanon live in overcrowded, cramped, and unsafe conditions. Poor infrastructure, contaminated water and dangerous electrical networks leave families at constant risk as they struggle with the Covid-19 Crisis and soaring levels of poverty across the region.
Discriminatory labour laws and precarious working conditions are major challenges facing refugees who find themselves unable to afford some of the most basic commodities. The elderly and people with disabilities are among the worst affected poverty across refugee camps; they face many forms of deprivation including persistent stigma and discrimination, and poor access to basic services.
Today, on World Poverty Day, we ask you to remember families in our areas of operation who carry the burdens of displacement and refugeehood with them every day.
UK Care for Children’s Refugee Relief Programme provides shelter support, clean water access, food aid, financial aid, and emergency medical support.
