Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,
It is our pleasure to share With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting everyday life, we thank you for your continued support and wish you and your community health and peace. Right now, Concern Organization for Women & Children faces new challenges. As we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we’ll continue to serve our communities as best we can. However, in order to ensure the safety of our community and ourselves, we’ve made necessary modifications to our programming that we’d like to share with you. For instance, we are working to spread knowledge , conducting the training and learning sessions through online platforms. We installed new technology and devices for beneficiaries’ benefits and for their easy access to technology Since our organization’s programming already aligns with COVID-19 relief/recovery efforts, we’re doubling down on this work. We’re doing this by supporting vulnerable communities who are the most likely to be subject to violence and are exposed to life risks. We’re grateful to be in a situation that allows us to continue serving our community during this crisis.

Stay Safe

As you all know, Lebanon is going through the most severe economic crisis in its history, exacerbated by the outbreak of the Coronavirus, and most recently by the tragic explosion of Beirut, which killed more than 190 people, injured thousands, displaced 300,000, and destroyed thousands of homes. . Many of the few businesses still operating in the city have been destroyed resulting in high unemployment.

Concern, with your generous assistance, has assessed the situation and designed its project to support employment of young people in need.
With no income to pay rent, food or medicine, people are homelessness, depression and suicide are on the rise. In response to this situation, it intends to implement its program to support up to 100 unemployed and financially vulnerable youth by matching them with paid internships in Beirut, while learning basic employability and personal skills through training

The committed and registered youth will receive a monthly stipend for a period of three months, after which they will be linked to a number of local and remote job opportunities.
Young people committed to the program will get $ 200 a month for three months to support themselves, thus reducing their sense of hopelessness and increasing their sense of purpose and direction.
So far, we are in the data collection effort stage, which will enable us to respond quickly to the needs of those affected by the explosion.
Our goal is to enroll up to 100 unemployed young people into this program.
In the last period we've learned how important the Small Effort Alliance really is.
Your support brings our project closer to helping them get back on their feet to rebuild their lives, and it will give them hope in overcoming this difficult time.

Forever grateful,

Ahmed Anwar

Yemen as the rest of world countries, facing outbreaks hit of COVID-19 and expensing even more difficulties than it was already experiencing before (due to the war and conflict). We are happy to share with you how the funds are earmarked for this project.

With your support on empowering women program, we have been able to household headed by mothers with small grants enable them buying needed food for their children instead of letting the children work to support bringing the food to family

Providing basket foods for 100 household headed by women in beginning of winter helped saving lives of needy, poor women and their children . As well as we are planning to provide around 1000 more in the coming phase of the project. This lifesaving food support comes in most rural and vulnerable areas in the world ever. People in Yemen considering the food assistance the most precious gift they could receive especially during the winter. With your assistance and support we saved lives of poor 100 women and their children.

As we face the pandemic head-on, we are grateful that you have joined us in this emergency response. Food support is in great demand and we would not have been able to meet all these needs without your generous support.

We are working very hard and it is encouraging to share that our mutual efforts are making a huge difference. We can reach families in remote areas and marginalized groups, such as refugees and people with disabilities.

In the picture you can see (Asem) one of the children who was working since very early morning to provide food for his mother and family who are living in a very rural village) With our lifesaving food assistance we succeed to make Asem to return back to school.

 

On behalf of the hundreds of needy children that we have been able to support, providing them with essential food assistance we thank you, your continued support is really recognizable. We would love to hear from you and answer any questions that you may have. Do accept our eternal gratitude and love.
