With over 50% of our people now living under the poverty line, we are launching a crisis-response program to help alleviate some of the suffering being endured by our people. We have chosen 3 most vulnerable regions to operate within: South, Bekaa and North. With your help we will be able to distribute food boxes to the most impoverished communities in Akkar, Dunniyeh, Tripoli, Batroun, Zgharta al Zawiyah, Beshari, Koura, Zahleh, West Bekaa, Saida/al Zahrani and Jezzine. Food boxes range in cost between $40 and $100 (or equivalent in Lebanese Lira) depending on the size and situation of the family/beneficiary.
Main challenge was lack of proper database and proper system at State level so we developed a transparent database, which some international institutional donors are relying on and also developed a clear system (attached) where we could efficiently and effectively cover the scope stated previously.
Through our 3 main regional hubs
- Mejdalaya covering North: Akkar, Tripoli, Beshare, Zgharta, Koura & Batroun (16.5% of population)
- Ferzol covering Bekaa: Zahleh and West Bekaa (0.95%)
- Lebaa covering South: Jezzine, Saida & Zahrani (3.7%)
