Meals for All
Libanon Health and Nutrition - Child Protection
Nowadays, aside from decades of extreme poverty, Lebanon has seen a massive influx of refugees and asylum seekers from Syria and Iraq, in search of better standards of living and a life worthy of human dignity.
The country however is not capable of facing the situation, and for this reason, refugees are forced to live in urban wastelands, in old buildings, with no electricity or heating. Furthermore, rising prices for basic commodities have left many families unable to buy the most needed goods, contributing to child hunger and widespread cases insufficient nutrition.
The project aims to support Lebanese and Syrian families residing in the Damour area, a small city south of Beirut. Twice a week our local representative “Oui Pour la Vie” provides them balanced meals composed of vegetables, rice or pasta, a main course of meat or fish and fruit. Thanks to this initiative, children and their parents have the chance to enjoy a full nutritious meal. In addition to this service, our operators try to help families in their daily basic needs, such as shelter and medicines and offer social and psychological support to the parents, trying to guarantee an environment suited to the personal growth and education of the children.
