Through this project Insan will provide basic assistance in the form of food boxes, baby supplies, hygiene kits etc. to families in Lebanon who have been the most affected by the country's economic collapse and numerous crisis which have made the middle class disappear and drove 55% of the population into poverty (ESCWA, 2020).
Lebanon has been struggling with a multitude of economic and political crises since late 2019 that have led to massive unemployment, skyrocketing prices and shrinking salaries, road closures by angry protesters and a government with no clear plan to slow the descent. Additionally, at least 190 people lost their life in the Beirut Port explosion in August 2020. Insan is now receiving more and more requests for help via social media, phone calls and drop-ins every day, unable to help everyone.
The Assistance to Vulnerable Families All Over Lebanon project will address basic survival needs of the people worst affected by the country's economic collapse by providing food, medications, hygiene supplies and household supplies.
The Assistance to Vulnerable Families All Over Lebanon project's long-term impact is simple: We will help people to survive until the Government of Lebanon provides a long-term solution.
