In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), NorCross works to alleviate suffering and save the lives of people affected by conflict, famine, and poverty. Political instability in the region has triggered humanitarian crises.
The regional office is in Beirut, Lebanon. NorCross also has country offices in Syria, Yemen, and Iraq. The office in Palestine was closed in 2019. NorCross supports health, WASH, and National Society Development. NorCross also works closely with ICRC and the Federation in several countries in the region.
