The Life Of A WFP Aid Worker At Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley
In the spring of 2011, William Barakat, a Lebanese university professor with a background in psychotherapy and biochemistry, found his life taking a new turn when he decided to venture into the humanitarian field. For two years, William has served as Senior Programme assistant for WFP’s Syria crisis response in Lebanon’s Bekaa valley. In celebration of World Humanitarian Day, WFP takes a closer look at William’s daily life as he contributes to feeding hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who have fled war in their country and crossed Syrian-Lebanese borders to seek safety in Bekaa.
