Economic crisis in Lebanon
Since 2019, Lebanon has been through one of the worst economic crisis in modern history and is still collapsing day-by-day with no end in sight. The Lebanese pound has lost 98% of its value.

The Lebanese have lost most of their savings to the banks. They are struggling to meet basic needs such as food, electricity and fuel. Hospitals are in deep trouble between the lack of electricity, difficulties in buying medicine and keeping their health workers as these are leaving the country in search of a better life. Meanwhile, patients are barely able to pay for their healthcare and medicine (when these are available).
As a result, many families have attempted to leave the country by sea, mainly from North Lebanon, putting their lives at risk.
