BEIRUT — Japan has made a $1.8 million donation to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to support 35,000 vulnerable people in Lebanon, according to a statement released Thursday.

Here's what we know: 

    • In its statement UNICEF said that over the next two months it will distribute duvets, jackets, thermal suits, outerwear and socks produced by “vulnerable young people” and intended for “other fragile families living in dwellings with limited or no access to heating.”

    • The UN agency also assured that it will continue to provide services in the Bekaa.

    • “We are fully aware of the seriousness of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Lebanon,” said Japanese ambassador to Lebanon Okubo Takeshi, “where the victims are always children and vulnerable families. At a time when they are facing harsh winter conditions, the Government of Japan decided to strengthen its interventions through UNICEF to alleviate their suffering.”
