Techfugees Lebanon 🇱🇧

Lebanon hosts the largest number of refugees relative to its national population (UNHCR 2018 annual report). There are around 3 million displaced people hosted in this country. One out of three has come from Syria as well as hundreds of thousands of long-term Palestinian refugees. Lots of them are jobless and suffer from precarious situations as well as huge debt.

Techfugees has had local contacts there since a while and decided to formalize its commitment locally through a Chapter in March 2019.

👣 ماذا يعني التطوع مع تيك-فيوجيز… تجربة عبدالله في لبنان

I was looking for any empowering opportunities for me as a Syrian refugee living in Lebanon for several years, but sadly … There was a lack of such things.
