Project Report | Dec 7, 2022
Keep on supporting Lebanese families!

By Francesca Pellegatta | Junior Project Manager

Dear Donors,

Lebanon risks remaining without bread! The conflict in Ukraine is worsening an already dramatic situation. The country imports more than 60% of wheat from this territory at war and it is facing also an inflation equal to 220% that hits in particular food products. This transformed bread from a primary good to a luxury product that few people can afford just in the black market. Lebanon is facing also a crisis of drinking water: as a result, Cholera is spreading in the country. Moreover, smugglers feed human traffic leading people to Europe.

In the last two years people in relative poverty have risen from 40 to 80%, the national currency has lost 95% of its purchasing power, half of the working force earn just 36-90 dollars per month and fuel costs sixteen times more than two years ago. The price of a basic food basket (food necessary for a month per family) is increasing by more than 1.700% since October 2019. People consume always less milk products, meat, fruit and vegetables. Households are reducing their expenses for health assistance and education.

Our local representative “Oui pour la Vie » in Damour is going on more and more intensely with the activity of food distribution supporting the poorest families of the village. Moreover, the association is providing a day hospital service for people with alcohol and drugs dependence, as well as AIDS tests and a counseling center for people in need. Since September 2022 Syrian and Iraqi children of the school of Damour are raising funds in order to buy goods for the poorest children that live in the slums built in the countryside and along the sea that live with their parents in tents. Winter is the hardest season to bare because storms destroy their shelters and they live without heating. The most touching fact is that already poor children are donating part of their savings in favor of poorer children without distinction of religion and origin.

Thanks to your help we can continue to support the most fragile families of Damour. Your presence is really fundamental!

Thank you!
