Since 2012, Doctors of the World has been supporting five health centres in the Bekaa Valley — a territory where refugees have gravitated in large numbers. Thanks to Doctors of the World, the victims of the Syrian conflict, as well as the most vulnerable Lebanese population, can receive free medical care. Together with local partners, we offer financial support and the means to improve the quality of care given to people in need.
To tend to the psychological suffering of the population, our psychotherapists provide consultations and ensure follow-ups in therapeutic centres. Cases of serious mental disorders are redirected to specialized services. The psychotherapists are supported by a team of community workers who offer preventive care and referrals within their local communities.
