Furthermore, European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič stated that the situation in Lebanon is going from bad to worse, with nearly 80% of the population living in a state of poverty, considering that cholera is an indication of this deteriorating situation and could not come at a worse time.
 
“EU funding will allow our humanitarian partners to deploy rapid response teams and ensure that affected communities consume safe water,” Lenarčič added.
