Peace be to you
We're a family trying to survive in "Lebanon", the country passing through "HYPER"-Inflation right now..
We didn't think it would last months, but it did, and it certainly will not end soon. The crisis will continue for years as analysts are saying, and we're yet to announce complete bankruptcy as the national reserve will be depleted soon ..
We have become the 2nd country in the world in the WORLDWIDE RANKING of hyperinflation.
The world witnessed the capital city Beirut decimated by an explosion not long ago, and whole districts of Beirut have been destroyed. The latest explosion in the port of Beirut further damaged our economy and accelerated the rise in prices as you might've known already from the news, or perhaps have seen this tragic explosion mentioned in Netflix's new documentary, "DEATH TO 2020".
Prices have become 10 times more than what they were.. we just can't afford anything..
- Businesses are closing.
- Salaries are being cut to half.
- Many people are losing their jobs.
Both of my parents take medications, and medications are getting expensive and are running out from pharmacies. We are refraining from hospital or clinical visits because of the high price of admission.
I have hospitalized family members, and their medical insurance is now priced according to the higher, inflated value, which is a catastrophe, drastic, tragic, and impossible to afford.
My 73-year old grandmother has a broken vertebrae and screams from pain.. She and my grandfather also take many medications.. To fix her back and relieve pain, a surgery is needed.. and that also costs thousands..
Above all else, there are NO DOLLARS IN LEBANON. It's either we have to get dollars (which have ran out from the market) or we pay 10 times the price of everything by the Lebanese currency (and 10 is just now, it's increasing).
---> We are growing in concern as the Central Bank of Lebanon warns that its reserves will deplete soon, forcing it to LIFT SUBSIDIES off basic commodities !
Our life has become miserable.. We're living day by day.. We have so many ill family members, prices are skyrocketing, it's still increasing to this day, and it will continue to.. Lockdown has also made it all worse and there's no life.. no work.. I don't know what to do..
I tried to find crowdfunding websites, but I suffered, as many rejected my country Lebanon because it isn't unsupported... I kept sending my cry for help and searched websites until I finally found a spark of light in this one, right here, and I earnestly hope it would be our salvation...
It's very important to me that I receive help from you. We're passing through hard times. May you not end in similar health and financial situations..
May I be able to help you later on and be guided to your and others' help and assistance in the same way you did. May God shower you with abundance and mercy for your help.
May God reward and bless you
Please help us....
