UK RESPONSE TO LEBANON: This is our hospital ship RFA ARGUS. With Beirut hospitals overwhelmed (injured being treated in car parks) this asset should be part of our support offered to Lebanon.

Lebanon - in economic crisis with poverty rates nearly 50% is hugely dependent on imports (net importer of food, with the latter accounting for 18% of total imports in 2018) squeezed by war & sanctions on Syria + Covid access restrictions & now damage to Beirut’s port
