Help Reunite the Subeih Family

Help Reunite the Subeih Family
At the end of 2023, I connected with a Palestinian man through a photojournalist I follow on IG. When the genocide following October 7 started, he depleted his savings to get his wife and three children out of Gaza. The Subeih family has been separated for the past several months. I have started this fundraiser for two reasons: first, to ensure that the children and their mother are able to provide for themselves. They are currently at risk of eviction, and have few resources at their disposal in Egypt. The funds will primarily cover essential expenses such as rent, utilities, groceries, and medical care for the family. The second goal behind this fundraiser is to facilitate the father's safe passage out of Gaza when the Rafah border opens up again. We have a chance to make a difference in the lives of the Subeih family. Your generous contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant impact on the Subeih's journey towards reunification and stability. Here's how you can support: Donate: Every donation brings us closer to our goal and directly benefits the family in need. Spread the Word: Share this fundraiser with your friends, family, and social networks. Together, we can amplify our reach and make a greater impact. Offer Support: Beyond monetary donations, your words of encouragement and solidarity mean the world to the Subeih family. Let's show them that they're not alone in this journey. If you would like to leave any messages for the family, please leave them with your donation or reach out to me directly. Thank you for your generosity and support.

Help Heal A Heart

He's a beloved member of our community, known for his infectious laughter and unwavering kindness. Ghass's journey took an unexpected turn when he received the devastating news – he had been diagnosed with colorectal cancer. This news rocked his world, but instead of succumbing to fear, Ghass chose courage. He resolved to fight with every ounce of strength he possessed, for himself, his loved ones, and for the future he yearned to embrace. A colectomy – that was the path Ghass's doctors recommended to remove the cancerous threat lurking within him. But this journey was not just about surgery; it was about reclaiming hope, restoring health, and embracing life anew. The cost of this crucial procedure loomed large, and Ghass knew he couldn't face it alone. In the heart of our community, surrounded by friends, family, and compassionate souls like you, Ghass embarked on his journey towards healing. The hospital became his battleground, and every prayer, every word of encouragement, became his armor. The date was set, a pivotal moment in a Ghass's quest for a cancer-free future. It was a day marked not by despair, but by determination. On 12/06/2024, Ghass underwent his colectomy, a testament to his bravery and the unwavering support of his community. As Ghass's story unfolds, we invite you to join us in this journey of hope. Your donation will not just fund a surgery; it will be a beacon of light in Ghass's darkest hour. Together, let's stand by his side, offering hope, healing, and a future filled with endless possibilities. Every contribution, no matter how small, makes a difference. Join us today in rewriting Ghass's story – one of triumph, resilience, and the power of community.

Education

Help me to continue my study out of Lebanon !
Help me ! أنا شخص يسعى لتحقيق أحلامه بعد إنهاء دراستي الثانوية بعد شهرين، أهدف إلى متابعة تعليمي الجامعي في مجال الهندسة خارج لبنان ايّ في فرنسا . ولكن نظرًا للأوضاع الاقتصادية والاجتماعية والأمنية في لبنان، وارتفاع تكاليف المعيشة، فقد قررت البحث عن فرصة لمواصلة تعليمي خارج لبنان. تفكيري يتّجه نحو فرنسا لمواصلة دراستي، حيث يمكنني الاستقرار وتحقيق طموحاتي. ومن أجل ذلك، أحتاج إلى دعم مالي لتغطية رسوم الجامعة وتكاليف المعيشة في المرحلة الأولى، لأنني لا أملك القدرة المالية الكافية لتحمل هذه التكاليف وعائلتي تواجه ضغوطًا مالية كبيرة. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، لا توفر في لبنان الفرص والإمكانيات اللازمة لتحقيق طموحاتي في مجال العلمي المتعلق بالجامعة بسبب عجز الجامعات الحكومية و الرسمية عن العمل بأكثر الأوقات . لذا، فإن الحصول على دعم مالي سيكون حاسمًا لي للبدء في رحلتي التعليمية وتحقيق أهدافي في الحياة. I am a person who worked to achieve their dreams . After completing my secondary education after 2 months , I am to pursue my university education in the field of engineering. However, due to the economic, social, and security situations in Lebanon, coupled with the high cost of living there, I have decided to seek opportunities to continue my education outside Lebanon in france . My thoughts are leaning towards France to continue my studies, where I can settle and fulfill my ambitions. Therefore, I need financial support to cover university fees and living expenses in the initial stage, as I do not have the sufficient financial capability to bear these costs and my family is facing significant financial pressures. Additionally, Lebanon's infrastructure does not provide the necessary opportunities and resources to achieve my aspirations in the field of engineering. Therefore, obtaining financial support will be crucial for me to embark on my educational journey and achieve my goals in life. Je suis quelqu'un qui s'efforce de réaliser ses rêves et aspirations dans la vie. Après avoir terminé mes études secondaires, je vise à poursuivre mes études universitaires dans le domaine de l'ingénierie. Cependant, en raison de la situation économique, sociale et sécuritaire au Liban, associée au coût élevé de la vie là-bas, j'ai décidé de chercher des opportunités pour poursuivre mes études en dehors du Liban. Mes pensées se dirigent vers la France pour continuer mes études, où je peux m'installer et réaliser mes ambitions. Par conséquent, j'ai besoin d'un soutien financier pour couvrir les frais de scolarité universitaire et les dépenses de subsistance dans la phase initiale, car je n'ai pas la capacité financière suffisante pour supporter ces coûts et ma famille est confrontée à d'importantes pressions financières. De plus, l'infrastructure du Liban ne fournit pas les opportunités et les ressources nécessaires pour réaliser mes aspirations dans le domaine de l'ingénierie. Par conséquent, obtenir un soutien financier sera crucial pour moi pour entreprendre mon parcours éducatif et atteindre mes objectifs dans la vie.

حملة إغاثة لمساعدة النازحين من الجنوب

حملة إغاثة لمساعدة النازحين من الجنوب
منذ الثامن من اكتوبر حتى اليوم، نزح ما يقارب ٩٠ الف عائلة من جنوب لبنان. تزامن ذلك مع ضعف شديد في الاستجابة من معظم الجمعيات المحلية و الدولية إلى جانب صمت مريب عن اطلاق اي مبادرات لدعم النازحين. هذه العائلات التي تعيش سواءا في مراكز الإيواء او الشقق المستأجرة تعاني من ضغوطات اقتصادية و معيشية شديدة. لذلك تطلق مبادرة "ارض و ناس" حملة تبرع لمساندة أهلنا المهجرين من الجنوب عبر تمويل حصص غذائية او مساعدات نقدية مباشرة. حيث تهدف هذه التبرعات إلى دعم صمود الآلاف من السكّان. إلى جانب ذلك ستقوم الحملة بالإضاءة على أحوال أهلنا و الصعوبات التي يعانون منها وسط تعمية اعلامية شبة كاملة. Since October 8th until today, approximately 90,000 families have been displaced from southern Lebanon. This coincided with a severe lack of response from most local and international associations, alongside a suspicious silence regarding the launch of any initiatives to support the displaced. These families, whether living in shelters or rented apartments, are suffering from severe economic and livelihood pressures. Therefore, the "Ared w Nas" initiative is launching a donation campaign to support the displaced people from the south by financing food rations or direct cash assistance. These donations aim to support thousands of residents. Additionally, the campaign will shed light on the conditions of our people and the difficulties they are facing amidst near-complete media blackout.

His mother, a 66-year-old woman who has stood by him through thick and thin, deserves access to vital medication and freedom from the grip of depression. Finally, establishing the training center requires capital, a haven for vulnerable youth seeking guidance and opportunity.

Beirut Coastal Cleanup Initiative

Environment

Beirut Coastal Cleanup Initiative
My name is GP SKAFF. I work in fabrics and my passion lies in the outdoors. I am involved in many environmental campaigns, with my most recent being the ‘Beirut Coastal Clean up’/ June 2021: The Beirut Coastal Cleanup is a grassroots movement. It started in 2021 with organized weekly meetups to pick up trash around the city. Every Saturday, a group of 20 to 30 people gather to clean up and send the trash to recycling companies. The areas covered are ramlet el bayda, rawche, manara corniche, zaytouna/biel waterfront sea side corniche, ashrafieh, tabaris, hamra, mar mikhael and more. We achieved over 100 Clean ups with 3000+ Saturday daily paid workers throughout Beirut, removed more than 400,000 Liters of trash and 5000 trash bags of glass bottles, plastic bottles/bags, paper and carton, In 2023, the plan is, with the help of more funding, to expand and cover more areas. We also want to clean the underwater seabed. With the help of our sponsors and their generous donations, a total of 9800 $ in 2021 were spent on manpower, bags, equipment and transportation. In addition to a cleaner coast and beaches, the most significant impact that we have seen is that people are littering less. They now feel a sense of responsibility when seeing fellow citizens doing the work. Help us reach our goal by investing in our environmental movement. The results are real! so you can rest assured your donation is creating a tangible impact on our planet for years to come! In 2023 our plans are: Project1: Beirut coast and city clean up Unfortunately, as per Ramco’s contract, they are not required to remove garbage from any area that is not a road and a side walk. This leaves dramatic results of uncleaned spaces such as those surrounding private properties, as well as parks, governmental and municipality land and spaces, mountains, etc. Since June 2021 a team of 20 to 30 people have been paid every Saturday wages to clean those areas. Our target is to increase the teams to 50 people (5 teams of 10), and to increase their wages to 20$ a day. Cost per day for 1 team of 10: 200$ + miscellaneous Cost per day for 5 teams of 10: 1000$ + miscellaneous Cost of 52 Saturdays with 1 team: 10,400$ + miscellaneous Cost of 52 Saturdays with 5 teams: 52000$ + miscellaneous Miscellaneous cost per Saturday : transportation 100$, equipment 50$, management ( hr & operation) Please see attached cost sheet Project 2: Beirut Underwater seabed cleanup More and more garbage and plastic end up in our sea and destroying marine fauna and marine life. Our project here is to pay 2 divers (Fouad and Zahi from Manara port, professional divers and fishermen), to clean up the seabed from Rawche to Aub and eventually expand further. And especially the Rawche caves where some seal or more live there. Main Cost is 50$ per diver per day + miscellaneous Please see attached cost sheet of this project Project 3: Rangers to clean and monitor Unfortunately, with the absence of municipality responsibility we have seen many areas where people gather daily and leave their trash. We already have 2 full time rangers that are responsible and feel the sense of ownership of the manara beach and the Aub beach. They are paid monthly to clean these beaches daily. Our target is to increase these rangers to 6 to cover Ramlet el Bayda and Ashrafieh parks 9 tabaris and saint Nicolas). Main cost is 400$ salary per month per ranger + miscellaneous. Please see attached cost sheet Social entrepreneurship goals: To help some people get a little money To clean our land and sea To decrease littering of people To decrease the plastic waste that is or will end up in our sea and harm the marine life Recycle garbage that if not removed will end up in our sea The total cost of the whole forecasted project is over 100,000$, but with any fund we receive we will do the outmost out of it. So any donation will be much appreciated. I hope to receive a positive feedback from you. With best regards GP

Light up the streets of Douma- ضووا شوارع دوما
Following the initiative of Inara Douma, in cooperation with the local community and Douma Municipality; Digne-Les-Bains- Douma Twinning Association is launching a fundraising campaign to light up the streets of Douma. The campaign focuses on providing special LED lamps to households, allowing residents to connect these lamps to their solar powered houses and illuminate the surrounding streets, or to provide solar-powered lamps in areas with limited access to electricity. Due to the extended power outage, the streets of Douma have been in the dark for a few years now, which makes it difficult for people and businesses to carry out their daily activities after sunset. As we all know, access to electricity is essential for the growth and development of any community. Additionally, with well lighten streets, we can reduce the risk of accidents and improve the security of the neighborhoods. Last but not least, the summer season is approaching, lightening the streets will also help in boosting the tourism and the economy, giving back to Douma the reputation that it always held, a pioneer in the community work and one of the most beautiful villages in Lebanon. Hand in hand, our beloved village Douma is coming back to light with clean, green, renewable energy. Thank you in advance for your contribution and for any more information about this campaign, please contact Zeina Sawaya ( [email protected]).
