Human Aid food packs feed refugee families in Lebanon
A UK-based charity is providing safe accommodation and vital food supplies to refugees in Lebanon displaced by war and persecution.
Human Aid is aiming to raise £8000 to support of 22 widows and over 80 orphans with food packages containing staple items like rice, flour, bulgar wheat and cooking oil.
While a donation of £30 will allow the charity to feed a family of six for up to a month, £360 will help feed the same family for an entire year.
This project is part of a much bigger initiative run by the charity which offers these vulnerable families a place to stay at a shelter called Dar-el-Salaam.
Human Aid needs £86,650 to run Dar-el-Salaam
Made up of 22 apartments, families residing at this sanctuary have been receiving food and education, as well as recreational and psycho-social support since 2016.
Currently Human Aid is attempting to raise a total of £86,650 which will not only help maintain this shelter but also allow for much needed extensive renovations.
Of the 1.3 million Syrian refugees residing in Lebanon, nearly half are children, with many being “forced to work on the streets to survive” and open to “sexual exploitation”, according Human Aid.
For £20 per month, the shelter also provides psycho-social support for a single family that can help children come to terms with the trauma brought about by war and displacement.
The charity has setup a ‘Food Packs for Widows & Orphans’ Launch Good page (https://bit.ly/3dtAQXx) and is hoping to meet its target of £8000 by 1 June 2021.
