Since 1948, the United Nations has been in Lebanon providing support and helping vulnerable Lebanese through decades of hardships.
The United Nations Information Centres (UNIC) just released its United Nations Annual Report detailing the results of its efforts in Lebanon in the year it witnessed unprecedented and devastating crises.
From helping in the response to the pandemic to providing emergency aid in the wake of the Beirut blast, the UN country team has stood by Lebanon in its plight.
“2020 was an exceptionally challenging year for Lebanon, marked by a series of socio-economic and political hardships that wreaked havoc on the people of Lebanon and continue to submerge the country with unprecedented challenges,” said UN Deputy Special Coordinator, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Lebanon, Najat Rochdi.
“Despite the scale of these challenges, UN Lebanon continues to support the people and commits to defending their rights to dignity, peace, and justice,” she added.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
