The project has ended successfully with the establishment of the Caravan which has been of great help for refugee children who have found as a refuge and a safe space to share their feelings and thoughts through URDA's Basamat Psychosocial Support team.
Miranda Cleland from GG has visited the shelter site where the caravan was located before the Lebanese government's decision to remove all structures with concrete walls or bases. However, our team has successfully managed to expand this project to establish the Bekaa Community Center that now hosts all the projects that were affected by the Lebanese government's decision.
We thank all the great people who have contributed to this project.
Our Back to School project has just ended with a total of 25$ donation through Global Giving, a matter that urged us to finally conclude the campaign on Global Giving.
Our humanitarian project aimed at providing underprivileged children of Syrian and Lebanese nationalities with proper education that can allow them to make their dreams come true whether through offering them their school tuition fees, transportation fees, or school bags and supplies.
Many thanks to the great humanitarian souls who supported this campaign and took a step forward toward ensuring the education of underprivileged children in Lebanon. We're really grateful for your generous support!

On behalf of URDA and the residents (Children, Women and Men) of Al Yasmine Shelter Site, we would like to thank all the donators for supporting the Protection Sector at URDA to start this initiative. As a means of gratitude and thankfulness we would like to keep you posted on each step concerning the establishment and operation of the “A Caravan Comes True” Project.
The First Steps of the “A Caravan Comes True” Project where requesting price offers for the Caravan and purchasing it after coordination with the Procurement Unit at URDA. The Caravan was transported to Al Yasmine shelter site and placed in a location that would ensure protection to all its visitors. The Protection Sector Coordinated with the team leader of the social workers and studied the potential program to be delivered to the children. After the program was studied and was found complementary to the needs of the children in the shelter site, a list with the needs for the sessions was placed and purchased to make sure all requirements are available beforehand.
The social workers team has been gathered and have received training on the implementation of activities to the children based on the approved program. The PSS team has conducted visits to the household units in Al Yasmine shelter site and formed lists of participants, taking into consideration age, gender and psychological needs.
With this being completed, we have completed the preparatory phase of the project, and are ready to initiate the implementation phase of the project.
