Meals are ready!
Recentlty, the president of Lebanon said that the number of Syrian refugees present in the country exceeded half the number of Lebanese residents. In the place where there are the largest groups of refugees, the water is low and the electricity is only public land, so it is for a few hours a day and then the darkness!
The world work to which refugees access is dominated by sanctuary employment, without any rights and with the constant risk of being unpaid. It is therefore a challenge so much to food and health expenditure: people often have to choose between a meal, a medicine and invoices.
In the face of this emergency, here is what write us our local contacts from “Oui pour la vie, the volunteer association that coordinates the project and who has been working for the poorest for several years:
“From August 2017 Oui pour la vie’s kitchen is open four days a week and a second group of 30 families have access to the canteen. The number of beneficiaries has therefore doubled and currently the kitchen offers 300 meals a day, which multiplied by 16 days for opening month, correspond to 4800 meal/ month. Although costs have also increased (each day of cooking costs around € 530, totaling € 8.503/month), we are really happy to be able to guarantee at least one day and nurturing the increasing number of people. We submit us to the sensibility and generosity of all to be able to carry on this beautiful and providential project. The kitchen is becoming more and more a meeting place among women of different groups, thus helping sharing and mutual assistance".
Special thanks to all our donors: the things to do are many, but together we can really improve these people's lives step by step!
