A Christian refugee from Iraq wearing a gold crucifix and medallion of Iraq at the Chaldean Bishopric. The church and Caritas help the refugees with employment, rent, health, education and administration problems. Lebanon is host to an estimated 50,000 Iraqi refugees. Relative to their percent of the overall population, a large proportion of the Iraqi refugees in Lebanon are Christian. Many come to Lebanon because they feel they have better opportunities for work and resettlement than in neighbouring countries.
