By Vaseline May31,2024

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) launched an employment program for Lebanese from border villages in southern Lebanon displaced by the conflict.

Hassan Dbouq, head of the Union of Tire Municipalities, which helped inaugurate the program, said the displaced would be able to do an average of five hours a day of cleaning and agricultural work in exchange for ten dollars.

The program, called “Work for Cash,” would allow each displaced person to work 20 days a month and receive $200.

The latest report from the disaster management unit put the number of displaced southerners at 81,000.

The southern city of Tire hosted the largest number, 27,400 displaced persons, followed by Nabatieh governorate, which has 26,911 displaced persons.
