HRH then visited a refugee camp near Bar Elias where she met with beneficiaries of the training and micro-financing by "arcenciel". She then distributed food kits.

On the afternoon of the second day, the Grand Duchess finally visited the Caritas Safehouse in Reyfoun to learn about their work in protecting and assisting victims of sexual violence.
