Hygiene and food vouchers for refugee families

With your support, MECA has just made a grant to provide vouchers to 600 refugee families in Lebanon close to the border with Syria. Families were selected for this project by our partner, Children of Al-Jalil Center, who keep a database of refugee families in the Bekaa Valley including the number of family members, exact location, and financial status. They coordinate with other aid agencies to avoid duplication.

Families will receive vouchers to "shop" at local markets and choose the food and hygiene products that meet their needs. This both supports the local shop owners and allows families to make decisions about their own immediate needs.

We will be sharing photos and information about some of the beneficiaries later this summer.
