  10. Needs Chart Nahr el Bared - November 2007

  11. Conclusions • Shelter and Wintering: Heating, Resolving issues of over-crowdedness, and General Shelter Conditions • Financial Support: Related to high percentage of reported lost personal assets, the low income level, and a high unemployment rate; more than 60% of families reported having no source of income • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene: Water provision is a two sided problem. First, in terms of provision and consistency, many reported insufficiency in comparison with needs. It is also related to the method of water distribution that are still based on water tanks placed in the streets, which will be hard to reach during winter. As for hygiene, the results show a shortage in provision, since the provision has stayed on the same rate from the time of displacement towards the time of return, where generally hygiene is much more needed in the return phase. • Autonomy in Diet Selection: Kitchen Kits and Cooking Gas have been reported to be valuable needs to obtain minimum sustainability in the phase of return and especially during winter. • Food Provision (Consistency and Sufficiency): As mentioned before, Food Provision has two main problems: the gap in food provision and the lack in custom sized kits for families whose size is greater than 6. • Medical Services: Generally, there is good provision of medical services, but the need here is more related to the general situation of the returnees and the camp. There is a specific need for a public health plan and actions to safeguard the livelihood conditions.
