Mishwar Amal

Mishwar Amal started in May 2016 in response to the ongoing refugee crisis in Lebanon. There are 500,000 Palestinians living in 12 camps and an estimated 1.8 million Syrians in hundreds of informal settlements throughout the country. Our goal is to provide support for refugee communities, and the communities which host them, by developing creative projects which help engender real social and economic improvements for all. By fostering links between Lebanese, Syrians and Palestinians, we seek to strengthen capacities, self-reliance and solidarity so that solutions to the many problems faced can be found within the communities themselves. In these times of crisis we are facing increasing and overlapping challenges and we believe a creative and cooperative approach is the way forward.
