Project Report | Jun 17, 2019
Help for Basma!

By Ilaria Ventura | Project leader

We have fresh news for you: Miriam and Laura, our Country managers, have just come back from their monitoring trip to Damour! They can’t wait to tell the story of one refugee child….

“When the war started, Abdo had one goal in mind, save his family from what they feared most. He just didn’t know that things will go that fast. He left his wife with four children, the eldest 7 years old, and came to Lebanon to try to find a place to stay and a job. Short after that, the war had reached Aleppo, and Ghazale had to flee with her four children to Afrin. Two months later, Ghazale was able to flee with her daughters to Lebanon. The family lived for four years in Ouzai, one of the poorest banlieues of Beirut. They moved after that to Damour, where the family had two other children, the youngest of which, Basma, is now 9 months old.

Basma suffers from birth from health problems and malnutrition. Since birth her intestines are not functioning properly. Because of that her body is unable to get rid of toxins. At 6 months she did tests that showed high levels of inflammation, malnutrition and severe anemia. The family was getting the needed medicine but was unable to purchase the prescribed milk. The doctor declared that breastfeeding was not giving her any nutrients, but the family could not afford baby’s milk. Because priority was given to medicine, the mother was diluting yogurt in water with the hope that this will help her daughter. Milk is provided to Basma when donated, as was the case of the milk provided by Aleimar”.

As you may already know, the 20th of June is the World Refugee Day, a very important opportunity for you to support Meals for All. From 00.00 ET on Thursday 20th of June to 23.59 ET on Friday 21st of June, GlobalGiving will double your donation!

Only a donation per person is possible, so it would be great if you could engage your friends, relatives and colleagues. Please tell them who we are, what we do and help us spread this call. You’ll make the difference in these families’ lives!

Thank you from the bottom of our heart!
