The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”’ Matthew 25:40

It is believed that 4 years on from the civil war in Syria, half of all Syrians have either fled to another country or are internally displaced.

1.5 million are living in Lebanon, of which 410,000 are in the Bekaa Valley. 

The Fayda camp is one of these refugee camps. Situated 15 km from the Syrian border, it is home to many Syrians displaced from cities including Aleppo and Homs, which have seen some of the most violent clashes of this conflict.  Many refugees living in the camps have faced harrowing experiences of being bombed and family members being killed or maimed. They now face a life in limbo, unable to return to their homes and yet in a country that does not want them.

The Fayda camp is not a registered UN camp. Residents rent their plot of cement, erect simple dwellings of metal poles and scraps of plastic banners. The living conditions in the camp are described as dismal - the water is contaminated with the raw sewage running through ditches flanking the camp.

Our work

You care about us; you treat us like we are human beings, not statistics

Rope and our partners seek to deliver transformational change for 50 Syrian refugee families in the camp.

Our partners have a long history of working with refugees in Lebanon and view their work as engaging with people in this transitional phase of their lives. Their aim is to stand alongside those facing trauma by offering practical relief and forging trusting relationships. Their hope is that every person they engage with will leave better off emotionally, spiritually and physically. So whether a person stays in Lebanon, goes back to their own country or leaves for another country they will do so stronger and more able to cope.

It costs £56 to support a family for a month

With Rope’s support our partners are able to provide a whole package of support: monthly food and hygiene packs, regular visits of counselling and prayer, Bible studies and children’s work. The regular visits provide emotional care and support and health awareness. Where appropriate they offer Bible studies with families and distribute Christian literature.
