A failing economy, state of emergency and high unemployment rate have resulted in Lebanese people being unable to afford and/or reach adequate food. In response to this situation, we began an emergency food distribution this past weekend in Beirut’s Chiah-Shatilla Camp.
Each kit of food given to families included: tuna, sugar, rice, cheese, pasta, lentils, olive oil, mortadella, salt, vermicelli, tomato sauce, beans, chickpeas, and hummus.
So many are in need but still very much concerned for others in their community. Despite having no income, an aging grandmother living with her three daughters and two grandchildren requested to share her food kit with her two neighbors because she feared they would be left out.
So far we have reached 230 families and plan to reach more in the coming weeks. There are many more families who need our sincere help at this time. Any support you can offer via donations is duly appreciated. Inshallah.
