In mid-2021, the fuel and electricity shortages that Lebanon faced as a consequence of the economic crisis became critical, threatening the provision of essential services. Many hospitals and public water supply and wastewater treatment facilities were forced to reduce services, jeopardizing public health and safety amidst the economic crisis and COVID-19 pandemic. In response, WFP supported WASH and Health facilities through fuel provision to ensure continuity of their operation and that people continue to have access to their services.
- 5.1 million litres of fuel distributed in total to Health facilities
- 272 Health facilities reached across all 8 Governorates in 26 Districts
