Summary

The project aims to support the Lebanese and Syrian families residing in the Damour area. Twice a week our local representative "Oui pour la vie" provides them balanced meals from a nutritional point of view . Thanks to this initiative, children and their parents have the chance to enjoy a full meal. The repast consists of vegetables, rice, a main course of meat or fish and fruit. Besides this service, our operators try to help families in their daily basic needs, such as shelter,medicines etc

Challenge

In recent years, in addition to the already existing poverty and the numerous waves of refugees coming from Syria and Iraq, the population of the area has had to deal with essential goods increase price. The poor neighbourhoods in Beirut outskirts are overcrowded, as well as the homes where people live reach even 20 persons per apartment. Because of this complicated situation, many Lebanese and Syrian families can no longer buy food. Feeding in a balanced manner has become impossible.

Solution

Last February, after having made usable a garage placed next to the group headquarters, our local contact "Oui pour la vie" has initiated the project. In that space, they installed a kitchen thanks to the donated appliances and some new purchases. Each families receive a coupon to be presented simultaneously meal picking up at the OPV headquarters. The OPV operators seek to offer also an entirely psychological and practical support to the families.

Long-Term Impact

Since the project started and the kitchen has made operational, the initiative has demonstrated considerable success: more and more families are coming to the OPV headquarters in order to request their participation. The project has a huge potential and it represents a valuable resource for the impoverished families. Furthermore, OPV can count on a lot of volunteers always willing to help.
