Help strengthen Christian Love Voice in Lebanon
Alamghar means ‘pen of laurel’ in Arabic. Alamghar is a Lebanese website that serves as the voice of Christian love during dark times, and is currently run entirely by volunteers. We ask for your help to keep this website alive. Please read our story & how you can help, below. Our story Hi, I am Guitta. I have dedicated my life to spreading the word of God through media. Earlier this year, the religious media company I was working for shut down in Lebanon, due to the multiple crises the country has faced recently. The impact on the Christian community in Lebanon has been significant in the past few years, linked to the national economic and political collapse, as well as to the changing dynamics of the Middle East region more broadly. • Lebanese people of faith today, more than at any point since the Civil War, need a source of inspiration and hope (including, but not limited to, the aftermath of the port explosion a year ago), a source from which to learn about their religion (now a minority in the country), and a source of feeling connected to one another. • After the media company’s closure in Lebanon, there was no such source online in Lebanon. So I took my own leap of faith… • Together with 2 volunteers (who happen to be blind), and without any funding, I launched Alamghar earlier this year. We hoped to be that source for Lebanese Christians and other believers. • We have seen a clear hunger for what Alamghar provides, as our follower base has rapidly grown from a handful in March to ~21,000 today. Our readers have told us that [when they feel a loss of hope, they come to Alamghar to read about people overcoming challenges through faith; when they feel anger about what has happened in Lebanon, Alamghar’s stories about love helps them find peace. Our goal is to help as many people as we can, and we believe that we can reach over 250,000 faithful in the next couple of years. Alamghar is fortunate to have a benediction from the Maronite Catholic Church, as well as a strong base of loyal readers. What we are lacking, however, is funding to survive this crisis. How you can help To survive, Alamghar needs $19,240 for the next 12 months. What will these funds go to? • The current volunteers who have co-founded this site need an income to support their families through the economic collapse (where finding employment is difficult for most Lebanese, and especially so for the blind), and these funds will provide that. • The website also needs to be able to meet demand and reach even more people, and these funds will cover hosting, boosting, and maintenance, and will provide an income for the additional talent that will help with journalism, editing, and graphic design. In short, the $19,240 will support 5 team members & me, and most importantly, help Alamghar continue to promote peace & spread God’s love. Will you help?

Education

Teach a Child with Special Needs
The Special Education Department at Adduha High School caters for children with communication disorders needs. The aim of the department was to provide its student with an integration setting, allowing them to benefit from the regular classrooms' setting and school activities, while also receiving the therapies and support they need. Due to the ongoing crisis in Lebanon, the regular classes at Adduha High School will be suspended for the academic year 2021-2022. Nevertheless, we are working hard to keep the special education department functioning in order to provide our students, and any student with special needs with the services they need and deserve. Our Special Education Department aims to be able to offer children with special needs with a welcoming non-judgmental environment where they benefit from Individualized Educational Plans, Speech and Language Therapy as well as Psychomotor Therapy. Some of the students joined our special education department 11 years ago when they were 3 years old; we've been tailoring their educational programs and adjusting them to their needs and potential throughout the past years. These students will have a very tough transition if they were to move to a different institution, or would have to stay at home for the coming academic year. By keeping our Special Education Department open, we will be able to continue providing them with their educational and therapeutic needs.

Buddha's Pack - Urgent Appeal for Help
Buddha's pack is a boarding and rescue initiative based in Lebanon. It houses over 100 dogs. It is owned by a middle aged lady who works as a one-woman-show. Despite the cumulating crises (economic crisis, Beirut explosion... etc.) leading to difficult/unprecedented times and affecting all sectors of life, she never gave up on any of the dogs under her care, even sometimes at her own expense. Many were abandoned at her doorstep, while others were left there by their rescuers/guardians who were no longer able to afford their boarding and food fees. She ended up having over 60 dogs of her own. Her sole income was from the boarding facility. She had to move from her old location over a year ago because neighbors were bothered by the dogs. However, given the rush that her previous landlords put her in, she had to move to a place that has been causing her problems from day one and is less than ideal. She urgently needs to relocate before winter since the place is not ideal for summer, let alone winter time, and we need your help to achieve this goal and be able to cover the rent of the new location (as well as related construction costs) and the basic needs of the dogs (food, blankets, vaccines, microchips, water, deworming and defleaing pills... etc.). Anyone is welcome to visit tante Pascale's current location and witness her treatment of the dogs with their own eyes. Kindly donate. If you can't donate, share! Thank you in advance!

Support Fresh Graduates through Arneli Art Gallery
"Being an artist and pursuing my Master’s degree in Plastic Arts has given me a great insight on the challenges that artists face upon graduating. There has always been a great difficulty in knowing how to approach a gallery, to market and eventually sell an artwork. Having had the chance of working in the finest galleries of Beirut, I have decided to sum up all my experience and knowledge in this field and to contribute back to my fellow artists and showcase something exotic to the collectors. Due to the ever-growing emphases of online marketing and digital platforms in promoting not only products but even ideas, the art scene, like all other markets, has shifted in a remarkable way from actual galleries and spaces into numeric and digital forms. Thus, I have decided to create a virtual platform called “Arneli Art Gallery”, which is a tribute to my family name, to help and support emerging artists and fresh graduates and give them the chance to be explored by art collectors and art institutions, from all over the Globe. The young generation of Lebanese and Middle Eastern artists is full of talent and intellect. But unfortunately, not a lot of light is shed on them. New talents are always hesitantly embraced and invested in. Through my platform this is exactly what I aim to do. To give a chance and create an opportunity to those who have decided to dedicate their lives for Art and need this first, yet full step." Thus with your support, i would be able to turn the life of 15 artists around through implementing creative and targeted marketing strategies and make the Lebanese Art Scene fly higher than ever!

Voice for the Voiceless
For more information, please contact me: +961 76447506 Gender hierarchy in Lebanon silences women and prevents them from identifying their rights and expressing their dignity. The reality is that marginalized genders, specifically anyone who identifies as a woman, are exposed to various forms of violence which affect their physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health! Not only that, but are also fundamentally believed that they are inferior. Yet, they still remain silent! Furthermore, some survivors choose to stay silent and refuse legal services in order to preserve their homes, their children and their dignity, or because they fear socio-economic, cultural, familial, sexual, verbal, psychological, or physical consequences. And even if they tried speaking up, they will often be the ones to be blamed: "Aya se3a kenit barrat l beit, kenit sekrane, kenit lebse asir..." This sheds light on the unreliability of the ISF and their lack of providing a secure environment for women residing in Lebanon to confide in. That is because the laws do not recognize domestic violence as a crime; therefore, they economically and psychologically undermine women that attempt to leave the household. For this reason, we aim to provide a voice for the voiceless! We believe that silence against violence is suffocating! For this reason, we believe that women should be empowered and learn the importance of self-love and self-acceptance to be able to recover from violence and trauma! By creating a safe space for women through the implementation of our project, the dedication of legal institutions to solve their cases, and the coordination with existing NGOs and activists, we hope to provide them with the tools and strength needed to keep violence away! We refuse women to become victims of violence!

Support small Farmers for a better Tomorrow
The Farming Hope Program aims to help vulnerable and rural individual farmers across Lebanon. Its goal is to assist low-income farmers to better their food quality, improve their devastating living conditions, for them to begin a journey of self-sufficiency and financial independence, especially during these times of eco-social unrest. We are currently providing small farmers, living in severe and dire conditions, with 10 to 20 chickens, 2 years' worth of grains and hen food, marketing support, as well as technical and professional assistance, in direct collaboration with the Lebanese Agricultural Research Institute (LARI), and the Syndicate of Veterinarians in Lebanon, for them to maximize their farming efficiency and sustainability. These farmers must get all the support they need to survive, have access to decent living conditions, and generate income for their families. The goals of the Farming Hope Program are as follows: 1. Provide 10 to 20 hens to poor small farmers and 2 years' worth of grains and hen food. 2. Encourage small-scale, environmentally-friendly farming. 3. Secure an additional revenue stream source for small farmers, to help them improve their quality of life. 4. Empower women, by giving them a space to develop their household economic skills, and provide for their families basic needs, as another source of income. Each $8 donation is used to purchase a hen. Each $100 donation supplies 6 months of hen food for a coop. Each donation of $760 covers the cost of the entire coop's implementation. Any contribution you kindly choose to make would go a long way in helping us achieve our objectives would be highly appreciated.

Help us support ending period poverty in Lebanon
The aim of this campaign is to support 50 women in vulnerable conditions by providing them with sanitary pads at reduced prices every month for one year. We will supply the sanitary pads to Therese for free, allowing her to sell them for the vulnerable women of the neighborhood at her Dekkéne in Gemmayze, at a subsidized price, and benefit herself from the profits in order to help her support the 3 families she’s responsible for. Reaching our target will allow us to support other small grocery shop owners like Therese. As a result of the economic crisis that hit Lebanon, the decimation of household incomes and hyperinflation of prices, a 500% increase in sanitary products has limited 66% of adolescent girls living in Lebanon from buying sanitary pads, and the percentage is still in increase. Families with reduced income are now forced to prioritize how they spend their tight budgets, women and girls from all backgrounds have suddenly found themselves struggling to purchase the items they need. A lack of education around periods means women and girls are more likely to turn to unsanitary, and potentially dangerous methods of coping with their periods when sanitary products are out of reach such as using newspapers, torn pieces of clothes, or even cardboards which could result in severe infections. NO WOMAN SHOULD CHOOSE BETWEEN FEEDING HERSELF AND HER FAMILY AND BUYING SANITARY PADS. Donate now and help us support girls and women in need across Lebanon to end period poverty.

Save The Grand Factory
We call ourselves Factory People because it has always been about the people. The people on the dancefloors, or the people who work so hard to keep that dancefloor pumping. Ever since the pandemic hit Lebanon, we have put all our focus on keeping our team safe and sound. Despite COVID-19 being exceptionally hard on our industry, we were able to maintain a family of 170 hard-working dreamers, each with their own families to support. We did so during the toughest economic conditions, that have affected all businesses. Yet, we managed to keep going and looking ahead to the time when our doors can open again. Then August 4, 2020 happened, and the explosion at the port, hundreds of meters away from AHM and The Grand Factory, left the clubs completely destroyed, our offices heavily damaged, and left us without a chance of having even the smallest of gatherings anytime soon. After that heinous crime, we cleaned up what we could at the clubs and closed our doors. Our team, like everyone else in the country, descended to the streets to stand with our people and to help each other out as much as we can. In December of last year, we were strongly against operating in any viable venue in the midst of our country combating a pandemic, and our doors remained closed. Today, we believe that Beirut deserves the chance to dance again, and to rebuild a place where we shared some of our favorite memories. We need your help to do that. We started a fundraiser to rebuild The Grand Factory and support our community of artists so we all, hopefully, come back stronger than ever. Local donations are not necessary, we're all going through this together We've also included some rewards for your contributions as a token of appreciation from Factory People that include Free Entrance and some draws for artist merchandise. We'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to never forget about what happened on August 4th, and never stop talking about Beirut. It warms our hearts to see all of your messages of support around the world, and we promise we won't rebuild without putting up a fight, we're carrying on our mission to create and foster communities through arts, music and culture, we'll have some more news for you in the coming weeks. Stay safe and see you soon.

The Third Voice for Lebanon
The Third Voice for Lebanon in partnership with Street and Independent Engineers and Architects (IEA), are working on a developmental neighborhood project which is called مشروع حي (Project Neighborhood and dually translated to Project Living in english). The Harvest Box, our other initiative continues to bear fruit and ripen! In partnership with Street and Lebanese Food bank, we have taken the campaign national! Not only by providing small to medium scale farmers with plants during this economic crisis, but in addition the farmers themselves are continuing the cycle of social responsibility and providing a portion of their yields to underprivledged families in need of assistance! Our initiatives confronts the crisis and the ineptness of the ruling class, as they are grassroots developmental/interactive/social projects that focus on neighborhoods and the individuals through enhancing and beautifying the spaces they closely interact with, while raising awareness about sustainability and safety through workshops. By doing so, we hope to be building a culture of responsible citizenship for the young generations living in the benefiting neighbourhoods. Mashrou' Hay also aims to establish communal and roof gardens  (urban agriculture) to further introduce independence, rain water retention, well being of the inhabitants, and several other sub advantages. As neighbors and their children interact and collaborate throughout neighborhoods, they in turn  build relationships with each other and public places further benefiting from them culturally and societally. Our aim is to strengthen the culture of the individual and social responsibility which in return will positively impact towards a healthier society.

Khayar: To empower Lebanese students
We aim to support Lebanese students, all around the world, during these devastating times. Khayar is a community-based platform that engages with students in a global network, bringing together bright minds for a brighter future. How did Khayar come about? In 2019 political instability, wide-spread corruption, and an orchestrated Ponzi scheme caused Lebanon’s fragile economy to collapse. Today between a plummeting Lira and unlawful capital controls set by banks, thousands of Lebanese students pursuing degrees around the globe and at home are at risk of having to terminate or forfeit their education. Even though Lebanon is a signatory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Lebanon is far from any form of proper application with regard to Article 26; the universal right to education and human development. In a social culture where the youth find their education deeply intertwined with political clientelism, most parents and students say “Ma ma’ae Khayar tene” meaning “I have no other Choice”. Khayar was organized with the intent of empowering a generation growing up in Lebanon’s most devastating economic period and liberating their right to education from the shackles of political influence . Khayar, a choice, is what each and every student needs right now. Ambitious dreams, proper education, and the achievement of one's highest ambitions are only found once the required assets are in place to ensure that equal opportunity is available to all citizens of the state. “When you educate one person, you can change a life; when you educate many, you can change the world” Please visit the Khayar website for more information: https://khayar.me/

It is not a charitable project or a social welfare program, but rather an economic project to help the refugees in their steadfastness in the diaspora. The project also aims to reduce poverty within the refugees community in the camps. Enhancing the sources of income for families within the framework of employing the largest possible number of women from the Ain El-Hilweh and Miyyeh camps in the “Zewedetna” food factory. The association needs support more than ever due to the conditions that Lebanon is going through from the Corona pandemic and the stifling economic crisis, which led to an increase in the prices of all basic commodities such as flour, gasoline and diesel, if available. The rise in prices led to a decrease in the profit margin, and the profit here is not financial returns, but rather the wages of women who work in this project, and they are the most vulnerable and under threat of unemployment. Your donation to this project will contribute to reducing unemployment and empowering refugee women in the long run. Nearly 25 women and countless families depend on your donations during these difficult times that Lebanon is going through. Help us help them!

Support the talents of gifted youth.
In the face of one of the most severe economic crises in its history, and a political climate that breeds uncertainty and fear for the future, Lebanese youth are compelled and forced to leave their home country in seeking a better future, immigrating to any country that would welcome and benefit from their world famous innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. Onward is a startup initiative attempting to encourage these youths to cling to their roots and to find a breathing space where their art and intellect is appreciated by providing them with whatever they need to develop and grow their talents. We are a small locally based group of teachers and social workers looking for talented and promising students to encourage them into believing in their homeland and to help rebuild it by rewarding their art and innovation and hopefully sponsoring the most promising ones in the future. We are based in North Lebanon which is its most neglected governate, in the city of Tripoli, one of the poorest city on the coast of the Mediterranean where poverty and lack of education and job opportunities make for a fertile ground for disenfranchisement, we aim to help in quelling the rising tide of extremism by spreading intellectualism and knowledge and helping teens feel like they belong. For every donation no matter how modest we will be able to fund or procure a much needed tool, instrument or precious manuals and textbooks, from painting kits to music instruments passing by any and every tool that would aid a young mind express itself while feeling validated and appreciated. Join us in helping grow the abundant seeds of talent in Lebanon and be part of a very special dream of keeping Lebanese families whole in the hope chartering a course of return to the Eden of the Middle-East.   We have three direct objectives we are hoping to achieve that will depend on the level of funding received: 1- The first objective is to directly procure the tools and instruments needed by the youth to practice and hone their talents and arts; we will conduct an inventory of the things that the children need and publish it and proceed to procure whatever the funding allows. 2- The second objective is to fund classes for gifted children; we will conduct a survey with the participants and attempt to fund the most desired classes and courses to insure that the largest number of them can progress their talents and grow them to professional levels. 3- The third and final objective is to fund the renting of a center that can host these classes and allow for a safe space for any child that feels the need for companionship and nurturing support, where we can centralize and facilitate all the activities of the project, the center would have a library full of textbooks, manuals and even regular books since sadly there is a disastrous lack of public libraries in these areas, as well as containing rooms for classes to take place without having to change venue repeatedly. We aim to help and sponsor any and all types of talent and interest, from scientific to labor-oriented to artistic endeavors, whatever skill or talent the young person wishes to advance, the project will attempt to help them change their future and even try their hands at different types of arts or talents to find that which suits them best . The sad reality is that the severe crises Lebanon is going through and the hyper-inflation has made it impossible for even middle-class families to spend their incomes on anything other than the necessary day to day needs, we strive to help these families and even all people from all walks of life to not neglect their inner voice and to express and advance themselves and to help children do better in schools.

Ecole du Saint Enfant Jésus - Besançon Baabdath
Notre école, École du Saint Enfant Jésus - Besançon Baabdath, est un établissement catholique, francophone, qui appartient à la Congrégation des Sœurs de la Charité de Sainte Jeanne-Antide Thouret (Besançon). Notre école est une ONG qui compte environ 700 élèves, encadrés par près de 70 enseignants et membres du personnel administratif. C’est un lieu qui offre un espace d’apprentissage dans un climat positif, et dont le but est de répandre le savoir, de développer le savoir-faire, et de cultiver le savoir – être, le tout dans le rayonnement de la charité et du Charisme de sa fondatrice. Dotée d’un historique riche et fécond, notre école est ancrée dans l’histoire de Baabdath et a su manifestement évoluer au fil des années. Depuis 1906 et jusqu’à nos jours, elle accueille les élèves, les « trésors » comme les appelle Ste Jeanne-Antide, de la maternelle jusqu’aux classes terminales. Filles et garçons sont formés aux valeurs humaines, spirituelles, sociales et religieuses. Ils suivent le programme libanais, bénéficient d’un enseignement trilingue à partir de la Petite Section, et tirent profit de l’enseignement des nouvelles technologies sans pour autant négliger le sport et les arts qu’ils pratiquent au quotidien. À l’école du Saint Enfant Jésus – Besançon Baabdath, nous veillons à garder un esprit évangélique marqué par la joie d’apprendre, de découvrir, et de développer la créativité et les activités pour que chaque élève puisse faire fructifier au mieux son potentiel et ses dons. Par-dessus tout, nos élèves appartiennent à une grande famille qui les aide à s’épanouir et surtout à vivre. Or, depuis octobre 2019, notre école, tout comme notre pays, vit au rythme des crises. Nous nous trouvons dans l’incapacité de pourvoir aux besoins croissants du fonctionnement de l’établissement, d’alléger le fardeau qui pèse sur les parents des élèves d’une part, et de continuer à respecter nos engagements vis-à-vis du personnel éducatif qui s’investit à merveille dans l’enseignement à distance d’autre part. En effet, dans cette situation inédite que traverse le Liban, 50% des parents de nos élèves deviennent chômeurs, ou mi- chômeurs avec un demi- traitement, et se trouvent dans l’impossibilité de verser la totalité de l’écolage. C’est pour ces raisons-ci que notre école se tourne vers les amis et les bienfaiteurs, pour solliciter leur solidarité de façon à poursuivre ensemble la mission d’éducation qui est celle de Besançon-Baabdath et que le flambeau de la connaissance, de la vie et de la foi continue à éclairer les yeux de nos élèves, de tous nos élèves sans exception. Une vidéo qui présente l’école avant le Covid-19 est disponible sur le lien suivant : https://youtu.be/O3I0_OFoP-I -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our school, Saint Enfant Jésus - Besançon Baabdath, is a Catholic, French-speaking school, which belongs to the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Jeanne-Antide Thouret (Besançon). It is an NGO that counts around 700 students, guided by 70 teachers and administrative staff approximately. The school is a place that offers a learning environment in a positive climate. It aims at spreading knowledge, developing the know-how and encouraging life skills under the influence of charity and the charisma of its founder. The rich and fruitful history of our school is deeply rooted in the history of Baabdath and it has visibly evolved through the years. Since 1906 to this day, it has welcomed students, « treasures » as St Jeanne Antide calls them, who fill the classes from Kindergarten to the senior classes. Boys and girls are acquainted with human, spiritual, social and religious values. They follow the Lebanese programme, benefit from a trilingual education since KG1, and take advantage of the instruction of the new technologies, not to mention all kinds of sports and arts they practice on a regular basis. At Saint Enfant Jésus - Besançon Baabdath, we remain vigilant in maintaining an evangelical spirit, characterised by the joy of learning, discovering, and developing creativity and activities, so each student can best grow and further his potential and his skills. Above all, our students belong to one big family that helps them flourish, and most of all, live. However, since 2019, our school, just like our country, has been living by the rhythm of the different crises. We find ourselves unable to provide for the growing needs that the running of the school requires, lighten the load on the parents’ shoulders on the one hand, and fulfil our commitments towards the teaching staff, who are doing wonders in distance learning, on the other hand. Actually, in this unprecedented situation that Lebanon is going through, 50% of our students’ parents have become unemployed or are just earning half pay, which makes it impossible for them to cover their children’s school fees. Those are the reasons that drive our school to seek the help of its friends and benefactors. We appeal to their solidarity, to pursue together the educational mission of Besançon- Baabdath, so the torch of knowledge, life and faith will always light the eyes of our students, all of our students without exception. A video presenting the school before Covid-19 is available at the following link: https://youtu.be/O3I0_OFoP-I

The House of Christmas
The House of Christmas NGO – Overview Brief: The House of Christmas (‘HOC’) was set up by a group of Lebanese professionals living locally and globally to support families living in financial distress across Lebanon, in their various needs: food and basic needs, decent livelihood, housing, medical services, education and legal support. Our first fundraising event was held in December 2017 at the House which turned, for a day, into a proper Christmas market with gifts, kid’s activities, a food court, and a proper spirit of charity, solidarity and compassion to help alleviate the pain, inequality and poverty in Lebanon. Since then, HOC organized several fundraising initiatives; and our network of families has grown exponentially. HOC operates solely on a voluntary basis and is run by a team of dedicated individuals with similar values and common purpose. Mission Statement - Reaching out to families in need across Lebanon to help them regain their dignity and achieve sustainability in their lives. - Providing targeted support to stabilize and strengthen livelihoods Vision Supporting, inspiring, and rebuilding our Lebanese community, family by family. Latest interventions: Following the August 4th blast, HOC is leading the Livelihood interventions within the togetherliBeirut campaign by supporting small businesses in a targeted and sustainable way and by restoring heritage buildings housing vulnerable families and local businesses. www.togetherlibeirut.org

Beit El Baraka
Beit el Baraka is a Lebanon based charity with a support program that assists decent Lebanese families living in strong financial distress. We are trying to restrain the fall into poverty of a disappearing middle class. Our Mission is to ensure dignity to hard working Lebanese citizens by assisting them in their struggle with the increasing cost of living. In a spirit of respect and support, we give them access to food, decent livelihood, medical services and education. Our Vision is a Lebanon where families can live a secure, valued and respectable life with access to social security, education and retirement pensions for all. Due to the lack of measures and lack of government support addressing this alarming situation, we felt the dire need to step in, and protect the lebanese family, all the while empowering youth, and women. To date, our database of beneficiaries comprises 226,000 people in need A glance at our 4 services: 1. Decent housing: We refurbish the homes of our beneficiaries in order to provide decent living standards. We also settle unpaid bills (rent, electricity and water) for families of retirees. Our impact: We are rehabilitating 3,011 homes and 320 small businesses devastated by the explosion. Our level our intervention covers the complete rehabilitation of structurally damaged homes and is done in very close collaboration with the Lebanese Army and the United Nations. 2. Medical support: Our medical support program fully covers treatment and medicine needs for our members. Our impact: We have 682 patients being treated for cancer, dialysis, diabetes, arthritis, glaucoma, osteoporosis, cataract, macular degeneration, and cardiovascular diseases; we also cover dental, hearing aids and prosthesis surgeries. 3. A free supermarket: In February 2019, we opened an elegant free supermarket based on a system of points which makes our members feel they are "shopping", not seeking charity. Giving someone the freedom of choice means giving them dignity. Our impact: We put food on the table of 226,000 people in need from all over Lebanon. And we have been vetted by international FMCG corporations such as P&G, Unilever, Nestlé, Henkel, Pepsi, Danone... And in order to sustain our food aid program, we decided to launch our agrofarming project. The sequential governments that impoverished Lebanon had no vision of a sustainable productive nation. Lebanon imports 80% of its food, and produces less than 10% of its needs in grains. And with no access to foreign currency, the risk of food shortage is now very high. Therefore, we have invested in agriculture and we are growing grains, vegetables and fruits. We also built a farm of sheep, cows and chickens, and 100 beehives for organic honey. Our impact: We are able to launch our own line of food products, create jobs that empower women in rural areas, cater to thousands of beneficiaries, and offer them healthy fresh produce. By offering fresh organic produce, our beneficiaries's health improves and consequently, our medical fees are reduced. In all our food bags and food boxes distributed all across Lebanon, we insert leaflets on which is written in arabic: "Nutrition is a human right, and should never be used as a tool to yield votes". 4. Education We want to instill hope in children so they know it is possible to achieve what and who they aspire to become. We are paying tuitions, buying laptops and installing internet in students' homes. Our impact: supporting 3,095 families to allow their children to continue their education. We have set up a micro loans program to assist the most talented graduates in launching their own start ups in Lebanon, and thus create jobs. We've also set up a psychological support unit for adults and children by partnering with specialised Swiss therapists. Some affected people are particularly unable to cope with the scope of the tragedy and can easily develop PTSD and bad coping mechanisms. We cover the entire lebanese territory: 42% Greater Beirut, 28% South Lebanon, 30% North Lebanon. Our major achievement remains our ability to keep our overheads at 2% of the total budget, proving how keen we are on optimizing every donation. We are regularly audited and our numbers are published on our website. Beit el Baraka is a Lebanon based charity registered in Beirut by decree number 2277 and a 501(c)3 status- Beit el Baraka USA, handled by the global law firm Morgan Lewis.

We also like to keep learning fun, fun, and proactive. Let's do this! For that dear reader, any amount no matter how small or big it may be to donate for our cause.
