With the closure of Lebanon due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the mobile library along with most projects being implemented in the region have come to a halt. Now, as daily lives suffer from the effects of the economic collapse and the shutdown, families are struggling to feed and care for their children.
Our team has regrouped and the mobile library will be back on the road distributing food, PPE, and storytelling for Lebanese, Palestinian, and Syrian children in the Bekaa and Tyr areas. The team will purchase food based upon what is available locally, providing sandwiches or za’atar bread with a beverage, to distribute to the children, encouraging them to attend.
Activities will be held outdoors, weather permitted, or in large open spaces to ensure social distancing, taking every precaution. You can further our activities with a donation of $10, $20, $50, or whatever you can give.
These are unprecedented times for all of us hitting vulnerable children the hardest. Your support will help protect children with proper hygiene supplies, nourish them with local food while keeping them active through learning.
All of us at KinderUSA remain convinced that our shared humanity and commitment to one another will continue to put children’s needs first. Thank you.
