We are wanting to organise dignity/hygiene packs for women and menstruating individuals in Beirut. There are 300,000 people who have lost their homes, there is still a health pandemic and economic crisis affecting Lebanon as a whole and often in times of crisis, women's basic needs and rights are forgotten or deemed less of a priority.

This is what we would like In the packs but we will be donating what is deemed the most necessary and priority products:

-Sanitary products for menstruating individuals

-Change of underwear

-Soap and personal hygiene products

-Sanitiser and PPE

We have made the decision to collaborate with female led Palestinian social enterprise Anat International to scale our impact and we are calling for all others, especially our Palestinian sisters to join us in spreading our campaign. We have chosen to work with local grassroots organisation in Lebanon Dawrati, as they are are small enterprise, led by women who also work with ALL menstruating individuals.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER PALESTINIAN WOMEN IN BEIRUT?

100,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes in 1948 due to military occupation and were forced to seek refuge in neighbouring Lebanon. They thought they were leaving temporarily, however they were never allowed to return and constitute a tenth of Lebanon's population.

Unfortunately Palestinians continue to face frequent acts of discrimination and even today despite the current crisis there have been reports of officials checking identity cards and refusing all types of humanitarian aid on the basis of race.

Once we have finalised raising funds, we will decide in collaboration with on the ground NGOs what is most needed and organise this. For any questions please message or DM us on instagram via @ballareco or @anatinternational
