The magnitude of the psychological distress has been overwhelming across Lebanon. Refugee Syrians are reporting high levels of depression, anxiety, sleep problems, appetite problems and an increase in suicide attempts.
Syria Relief’s protection team are running psychosocial support to 400 individuals from the Syrian community. Caregivers and their children will receive a weekly online session through WhatsApp/Zoom and a weekly centre-based session. The session will tackle a wide range of needs such as maintaining social connections during lockdowns, bullying and cyber bullying, emotional support, tackling anger and many more topics based on needs of the community.
Parents will also receive a monthly internet recharge package to support people to attend the sessions and ensure access to the service due to the worsening internet and electricity situation in Lebanon.
Provide a year of psychosocial support to 10 children today.
