Freezing temperatures, biting winds and snow become life threatening to those who don’t have homes to protect them from the elements around them.
There are more than 1.7 million refugees, including displaced people from Syria and Palestine, living in Lebanon today. These families escaped the violence they were faced with in Syria, only to be met with a new danger – the bitter winters of Lebanon. This winter will be a time of extreme hardship for both the refugees and homeless families of Lebanon as the cold, wet weather begins.
The crisis can be clearly seen in Lebanon, which has welcomed refugees from Palestine and Syria for many years, despite suffering from the impact of war and economic crisis itself. Freezing temperatures, biting winds and snow become life threatening to those who don’t have homes to protect them from the elements around them.
Lebanon hosts one of the largest populations of Syrian and Palestinian refugees with around 2 million people crammed into overcrowded and often dangerous camps with no heating, electricity, or running water. 70% of the families in Lebanon’s camps live below the poverty line and over 50% of those are below the age of 18, which means that millions of children are growing up knowing nothing but conflict, hardship, and poverty.
Winter doubles the challenges faced by the Syrian and Palestinian refugees and the bitter truth is, unless we act now, thousands of children and elderly will not survive the cold. They simply do not have the resources to see them through these difficult times. A lack of food, inadequate warm winter clothing, and no fuel for heaters and stoves will mean that life is a daily struggle for these people.
Now, we will be visiting Lebanon to distribute aid to some of the neediest of the ummah. This is the perfect opportunity for you if you wish to provide aid first hand to refugees in Lebanon. You will be able to use the funds raised to provide emergency food parcels to families in the refugee camps. You will also, help repair shelter and have an opportunity to witness first-hand the living conditions as well as, greet and seek the prayers of our beneficiaries all while helping them.
Winter is a fight for survival for the poor in Lebanon, give them a fighting chance today.
