More than 400,000 Syrian refugees have fled to Lebanon’s eastern Bekaa Valley region to escape the escalating conflict in their own country. Unlike other countries in the region there are no official refugee camps in the Bekaa Valley. The refugees are forced to live in makeshift camps in tents. Life is difficult inside these unofficial camps as the refugees have very little access to clean water, clothing, health care, education, or food.
This project began in January 2015 in the Bekaa Valley in eastern Lebanon. The project centered around the city of Taalabaya where arable and fertile land is easily accessible and there is a sufficient supply of water for irrigation.
The goal of this project was to give three women the opportunity to cultivate a piece of land to help support their families. These three Syrian women use this land to grow wheat, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Thanks to this project these women have a daily job and are able to provide for their families. A third of the produce grown in the fields is donated to refugee camps.
