Description : IDP (internally displaced persons) child residing in a house rented by her family.
In the background: Lebanese Red Cross youth volunteers carry hygiene kits for IDPs.
Many IDPs are staying in schools where they receive assistance. There are also many IDPs who are renting or staying with family or friends and who also need assistance but may have been overlooked. The Lebanese Red Cross is visiting communities to find these IDPs, determine their needs and help meet them. The LRCS is providing these IDPs with hygiene items and medicine and is working in collaboration with two NGO who are providing food and medical visits.
