This chapter focuses on social welfare as a system of provision and a measure of outcomes in Lebanon. In this chapter, the focus is on the two types of social programmes: social care and the micro-credit/cash benefits. The concern of this chapter is to consider the mechanics and dynamics of service delivery and consumption. Questions on how religious welfare defines the object of its interventions and how it responds to the causes of social problems are discussed in this chapter. It also considers the mechanisms of service evaluation used by religious welfare organisations to evaluate the impact of their work.

Keywords:   social welfare, Lebanon, social programmes, social care, cash benefits, service delivery, service consumption
