Lebanon has been in crisis for some time, too many people live below the poverty line with no governmental support or aid. Since the Covid-19 outbreak the economic impact on these families has been unprecedented, the reality is people, families, are starving and are unable to provide even the most basic needs, every day that passes is another day closer to starvation and destitution.
Unfortunately our government is inept and self-serving so it is left to individuals and organisations to understand and support the needs of these families to fill the void left by the shortcomings of the incumbent regime.
Ahla Fawda is a Non-Governmental Organisation that undertakes humanitarian and social well-being initiatives to support the most needy families in Lebanon. We do not discriminate on race, nationality, religion or any other factors, we simply do whatever we can to help the most deprived families survive.
We have been established and very active since 2014 building a strong reputation for addressing the needs of the people at the most crucial times.
Our fund raising has always been operated as a very low-key campaign, preferring to garner donations in a more personable and direct way but this limits the amount we are able to raise, given the gravity of the situation we have felt the need to open this campaign and seek as much help and support as we possibly can.
During the Coronavirus, Ahla Fawda has Teamed up with the Lebanon Covid-19 Task Force and Khebz & Melh to address the urgent needs of families across Lebanon. Ahla Fawda has personally raised funds and distributed more than 850 food-boxes, unfortunately this is just the tip of the iceberg and so much more assistance and support is needed.
Each Food-box costs 55,000 LBP which consists of the following basic yet essential items (some items are replaced with others depending on availability at time of ordering) :
1kg Chick Peas
1kg Falva Beans
1kg Crushed Wheat / Bulgar
2 cans tuna
500g Tomato Paste
1 Pack Milk
1.5l of Oil
We offer no rewards or gifts for your donations other than knowing every penny you donate will go towards saving a family from starvation and showing these people that we all care and will do our very best to support them in this terrible time.
Please see it on your hearts to give generously and we give you our word we will ensure that every cent goes towards supporting the people of Lebanon.
