Winter Assistance Program for 2021 - 2022

Back
13.10.2021

UNHCR is preparing the winter assistance program for 2021 - 2022. Due to the increasing vulnerability of refugees and as far as funding allows, UNHCR’s winter program will attempt to reach most of the refugee families in Lebanon, to support them to meet their basic seasonal needs.

UNHCR will communicate eligibility for winter assistance to families gradually, in connection with the upload of assistance on the Red Card, done in batches between October, November, and December. Benefiting families will receive one upload to cover the entire winter period.

Receipt of assistance is also subject to validation and possession of a Red Card, therefore some families will be contacted for remote or physical card validation or card distribution. If families successfully pass validation/distribution, the confirmation of eligibility will be sent by SMS once the Red Card has been Loaded with the assistance.

If you have any questions, please contact the call center at 01-594250.
