Welcome to Rotary Inter-Country Committee (ICC) Switzerland/Liechtenstein - Lebanon

Dear friends of Lebanon

Lebanon has been in a prolonged protracted crisis for years. Living standards are falling, and the middle class is disappearing.  Lebanese are leaving the country in droves, and poverty has become endemic.
