Thanks so much for helping the Middle East Children's Alliance to provide necessities for Syrian refugees. We have been putting your donations to work in Lebanon where an estimated 900,000 refugees from Syria are currently living in horrid conditions.
In partnership with ANERA, we are sending a shipment of 60,000+ bottles of baby shampoo and soap that will be distributed across Lebanon through clinics and community organizations. The shipment is en route now.
We also made a grant to Ajial, a local community organization in Lebanon that we have partnered with on aid shipments for Palestinian, Iraqi, and Syrian refugees in Lebanon for the last 3 years. Ajial's staff and volunteers are purchasing and distributing rain boots for children and blankets and bed sheets to refugee families.
At the same time, MECA's director is planning a trip to Lebanon to see the conditions in different refugee camps and towns and meet with local organizations to discuss how we can continue to best support children and families seeking refuge from the violence in Syria.
We will post photos when they are available and keep you updated about our plans.
Thank you again for your support!
