Tabitha for Relief and Development
Tabitha is a local Lebanese civil society actor, registered with the Ministry of Interior in Beirut since 2016. Tabitha is implementing a community-based protection program as well as projects with gender or child-focus in Beirut, Mt. Lebanon, and in Batroun, North governorates. Tabitha is an active part of the local NGO coordination mechanism and coordinates within the UN-led coordination mechanism at governorate and national levels.
Tabitha was established to support refugees and Lebanese host communities to deal with a large number of Syrian refugees. The high number of refugees in Lebanon continues to put pressure on the whole country and its citizens. Vulnerable host communities, marginalized families, and individuals with special needs feel this pressure immediately. Besides that, many refugees are affected by trauma and chronic stress and have resorted to negative coping mechanisms in order to make a living under such challenging circumstances.
