Liver op. (Transhepatic embolization of varies)
Dear friends, I write to you with a heart overflowed with hope and a story of steady resilience. I humbly seek your support for a critical and life-altering surgery. Two years ago, I was infected with the Corona virus, and my health condition began to deteriorate. I began to suffer from blood clots in the spleen, which prevented blood from reaching the liver, which led to its cirrhosis. I had the necessary tests done and it turned out that I was suffering from bleeding, which led to a severe drop in blood. Then, after undergoing several new laboratory tests, it became clear that I was suffering from cirrhosis of the liver, an enlarged spleen, in addition to blood vessel phlegm. Also, 4 months ago, I underwent a phlebitis operation in the stomach. For those who may be concerned, the patient, Kamel Ibrahim Makari, 19 years old, suffers from cirrhosis of the liver and cirrhosis of the stomach and intestines, and he needs an urgent operation (Transhepatic embolization of varies) that costs $13,000. Note that the patient is being treated by Dr. Abbas Shams El-Din- AUB For more information please get in touch with Diala the dr's secretary: 03808551 The patient's number: 81898879 Your support is crucial to me. No donation is too small, for every gesture brings me closer to a life renewed and filled with promise. You are the ray of hope that lights up my path. Together, we can turn my dreams into reality and inspire others to persevere in the face of adversity. With heartfelt gratitude,

Support Free Summer Workshops for Children
Dear Friends and Supporters, We are reaching out to you today with an exciting opportunity to support the creative growth of children in Okaibeh, Lebanon, specifically through Hunna Arts & Culture. Okaibeh is a rural coastal village thirty minutes from the capital and lacks activities for children and adults. Hunna, the first and only women/mother artist residency in the Arab world, has been a beacon of support for women artists with their children, and the community of adults and children around it. Hunna is located in Okaibeh and has been operational since 2022. From July to September, we plan to organize 9 free workshops for kids who join us from Beirut, Okaibeh, and all of Lebanon this summer. The workshops will focus on creativity, environmental awareness, education, and fun. We believe that in these challenging times in Lebanon, providing a safe and nurturing environment for artistic expression is more crucial than ever. We aim to engage children in meaningful activities, offering them respite from daily difficulties. Since our establishment, Hunna has led many successful programs, such as residencies, public workshops, concerts, and exhibitions. We need your help to include more children to learn, create, and grow. Our first workshop kicked off on the 6th of July with a session on upcycling paper, and we are committed to making these workshops accessible to all without placing any financial burden on parents. Your generous contributions will help cover the costs of materials, facilitators, and operational expenses, ensuring that these workshops remain free of charge. Please join us in making a difference by donating to our crowdfunding campaign. Together, we can ensure that Hunna remains a thriving hub of artistic interaction and cross-cultural exchange. Thank you for your generosity and support. Hunna's Founder Flavia Juska Bechaea

Help Kaia Fight Epilepsy

Emergency

Help Kaia Fight Epilepsy
Dear friends and supporters, Meet Kaia, our brave 17-month-old daughter diagnosed with refractory epilepsy —the first known case in Lebanon. This rare condition has led to developmental delays and severe, refractory seizures. Kaia had her first seizure at just three months old, resulting in her first hospital admission. Since then, she has been on a challenging medical journey. Kaia relies on different medications, a feeding tube, and various types of therapies. She continues to have weekly or biweekly hospital visits and has experienced prolonged seizures lasting 40 and 20 minutes, respectively. These status seizures necessitate the use of rescue medication to prevent brain damage or death. Unfortunately, due to the situation in Lebanon, we face numerous challenges in obtaining these medications, including the rescue medication. This has been an incredibly stressful journey for our family. Recently, Kaia was admitted to the PICU twice for pneumonia. She is now on an ND-tube due to weakness in eating and failure to thrive. Kaia is non-verbal, has hypotonia, and cannot sit or walk. There is no adequate support or inclusion for her needs at the country level. Despite these immense challenges, Kaia continues to fight with incredible strength and courage. We are reaching out for your support to help us cover her mounting medical expenses, including ongoing hospital visits, treatments, and specialized care. All her medications must be bought from abroad, and future medications will heavily burden our family financially. Kaia's required medications, therapies, and equipment include(Currently and within the upcoming months): - Keppra 100mg/ml is no longer available in Lebanon. - Clobazam is not available in Lebanon. - Depakine. - Stiripentol is not available in Lebanon, with a monthly cost of 175 euros. - Finfloramine, which will require Kaia to travel abroad to try the medication, as it is highly controlled (around 10,000USD administered in Lebanon) - Rivotril and Valium as rescue medications. - Physiotherapy, psychomotor, occupational therapy, and feeding therapy on a monthly basis. - Monthly feeding machine rentals and feeding bags costs.ETC These are the main monthly expenses needed to ensure Kaia has access to the necessary medication and care. Along with long hospital stays, we also urgently use machines such as a suction machine, pulse oximeter, and oxygen. In addition, our house needs modifications to accommodate Kaia’s disabilities, as well as specialized equipment for her rare case, which doesn't exist in Lebanon. Part of this campaign aims to highlight Kaia's case alongside the nearly 20 to 40 reported cases worldwide. By doing so, we hope to raise awareness among research institutions, physicians, and caregivers about our existence. We encourage other caregivers to come forward and advocate for a treatment and, ultimately, a cure. Your generosity will make a significant difference in Kaia's life and help us provide her with the best possible care. Thank you for your kindness and support.
