As the conflict escalates in Lebanon, so does its effect on children and families caught in the crossfire. NEF is responding to the immediate and urgent needs of ten of thousands of children and families who have fled their homes and are now living in schools and parks. Others are trapped in their homes without electricity and running water and are unable to meet basic food, medical and hygiene needs.


Provision of supplemental food, medicines, first aid kits, hygiene kits, sleeping materials for displaced Lebanese families. Priority assistance to children, elderly, disabled & women.

Long-Term Impact

Meeting urgent needs of 1,000 most affected people in the most hard hit areas. Relief will expand to other communities in the region if funding permits.
