US Administrator Power arrives in Lebanon for a three-day visit
The US Department of State issued on Tuesday a statement saying that US Administrator Samantha Power arrived in Lebanon today for a three-day visit focused on providing support to the Lebanese people, particularly those impacted by the country’s economic and humanitarian crisis, as more than half of Lebanese households are in need of some form of food assistance–a situation that has been exacerbated by Putin’s war against Ukraine. This also has a negative impact on the millions of refugees Lebanon graciously continues to host.

The statement added that the Administrator will also engage during her trip with Lebanese government and business leaders to press for urgent reforms and policies, and will also meet with those working to combat corruption and strengthen the private sector. 

“In addition, Administrator Power will meet with Lebanese and Syrian students, and Syrian refugees and residents from Lebanese host communities to convey the United States’ continued support,” it said.

Administrator Power will also visit USAID projects aimed at building sustainable food systems and projects that harness renewable energy to provide drinking water to communities in need, highlighting USAID’s efforts to address the impacts of climate change in advance of her travel to Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt for the Conference of Parties (COP27).
