As the war in Syria continues into its ninth year, Lebanon has become the country with the highest concentration of refugees anywhere in the world. Already home to over four million people, it now hosts approximately 1.5 million Syrian refugees. Syrians are competing with already vulnerable Lebanese people for affordable housing and services. Up to 70% lack valid residence permits, forcing families to make difficult decisions to survive. Many are falling deeper into debt and have been forced to move into sub-standard housing such as garages, dilapidated buildings, and tents.
