Works in progress at Bourj Al Barajneh

August, 13 2021
Despite the difficulties that the Country is facing (lack of fuel, difficulties in supplying materials, closure of roads), work continues without interruption for the construction of the main rainwater collector network in Bourj Al-Barajneh, in the southern area of Beirut.

The objective is to avoid the flooding and environmental pollution problem of a populated area in the southern suburbs of the capital, where the presence of Syrian refugees is important.

The works are carried out by AICS Beirut in the framework of the "Resilience & Social Cohesion Program" (RSCP), funded through the Trust fund "MADAD" of the European Union.

The intervention foresees socially useful works and to offer an economic support to the most vulnerable population of the host communities and Syrian refugees. An important number of the workers are selected from the area.
