SDG 10: Reduced inequalities

En 2013, le Programme de soutien aux communautés d’accueil du Liban (Lebanon Host Communities Support Programme, LHSP) a été lancé conjointement par le ministère des Affaires sociales du Liban et le PNUD, dans le cadre du Plan de gestion des répercussions de la crise syrienne au Liban (LCRP) mis en place par le pays. Le programme est destiné aux communautés les plus vulnérables accueillant des déplacés syriens. Il a pour objectif d’apaiser les tensions et de réduire les conflits entre les communautés d’accueil et les communautés de réfugiés.

SDG 10: Reduced inequalities

Andrea Marilyn Pragashini Immanuel: “Refugees bring with them their culture, traditions, history and a truckload of experience. They strive through unimaginable hardship, incomprehensible misery and through it all find the strength to smile. They have taught me perseverance, to never give up hope even when everything fails and to strive hard. They have taught me to appreciate life, peace and prosperity.

La Journée mondiale des réfugiés est l’occasion de rappeler qu’il faut soutenir les réfugiés dans le monde entier, se tenir à leurs côtés dans les épreuves qu’ils traversent et rendre hommage au courage, à la force et à la détermination des femmes, des hommes et des enfants qui sont obligés de fuir leur terre natale pour échapper à la persécution, aux conflits et à la violence.

SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions

In 2015, I got the opportunity to become a UN Volunteer Child Protection Officer with UNICEF in Sudan. In a country severely affected by armed conflict, displacement and food insecurity, the humanitarian needs remain critical. In addition to an estimated 2.2 million people displaced internally, Sudan has received over a quarter of a million refugees fleeing the war in South Sudan. Approximate 70 per cent of these displaced people are children.
