More than one million Syrians and Palestinians have crossed
the border with Lebanon over the past three years, fleeing
from the unbearable suffering brought by the war. They live
within Lebanese communities across the country, but are
primarily concentrated in deprived areas of the North and the
Bekaa Valley. Refugees now constitute over a quarter of the
pre-crisis population, making Lebanon the country with the
highest per capita concentration of refugees worldwide.
