Caritas Lebanon denounces the lack of medicines and basic products in the country

Following the Beirut port explosions in August 2020, Lebanon fell into a deep economic crisis from which it has not yet emerged.

MICHEL ABBOUD
President of Caritas Lebanon
“The crisis in Lebanon is affecting almost everything, especially the health sector. There is a huge shortage of drugs. “

Both drugs for chronic diseases and drugs against the symptoms of Covid-19 are lacking.

MICHEL ABBOUD
President of Caritas Lebanon
“We are looking for solutions and trying to collaborate … But we are in the midst of great confusion, total uncertainty. If you ask someone in charge what the future will be like in Lebanon, they will answer: ‘I don’t know.’

The Pope said he wants to travel to Lebanon, but will not do so until political uncertainty is cleared and a new government is formed. And, as the president of Caritas emphasizes, despite the crisis, Lebanon continues to be a model of unity for the world.

MICHEL ABBOUD
President of Caritas Lebanon
“Lebanon embodies a message for the whole world, where religions can live together. Christians and Muslims coexist here. And in our schools we can see the Muslim and the Christian together …. That is our identity, our mission, our message for the whole world ”.

With this identity and spirit of inclusion, Caritas serves the most disadvantaged communities of the

country. The organization oversees 10 primary health and social service centers, 9 mobile clinics, and several refugee and education centers throughout the country.
