The Lebanon Humanitarian INGO Forum (LHIF) is an informal, independent coordinating body comprised of 33 international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) who are working to address the needs vulnerable communities throughout Lebanon. LHIF provides a joint platform to facilitate our members' work and help members to effeciently and effectively address key issues of common interest. All LHIF members have an equal voice in decision-making. An elected Steering Committee represents the LHIF externally and oversees LHIF activities. A permanent Secretariat provides strategic, technical and logistical support to further LHIF initiatives.
LHIF facilitates coordination among members by identifying strategic issues of concern, advocating for common positions with a unified and consistent voice, engaging and representing members with external stakeholders and sharing information.
