Walking with families toward a sustainable and hopeful future
The brutal worsening of the economic situation in Syria and Lebanon deprived many families of their jobs or livelihoods. MERATH continues to complement relief assistance with livelihoods and recovery projects, such as sustainable agriculture, shelter rehabilitation, adult literacy, and vocational trainings, to help families gain skills or get back on their feet.
