With support from the Lebanese Red Cross, the ICRC distributed 90 tonnes of food to around 10,000 Syrian refugees in northern Lebanon in late September.  “It’s the first time we have made such a large food distribution in Lebanon since the Syrian crisis began,” said Jeroen Carrin, ICRC’s coordinator for the food distribution. “It’s a sign that needs are growing significantly.”  Food was also given to Lebanese families who have been hosting the refugees.
