The European Union launched a health and psychosocial project in the Bekaa town of Al-Marj Wednesday to provide support to Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese host communities.The project, which will be implemented by humanitarian aid NGO Medair, Christian Relief and development agency Tearfund as well as the Arab Center for Consulting and Training Services, will also expand the capacity of current social development centers in the area and improve their services, the EU said in a statement.The project's fund is sourced from the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis – the Madad Fund – which works on implementing the EU's 3 billion euro ($3.7 billion) pledge to assist the Syrian people inside Syria and in neighboring countries and host communities.
