The price of food has risen almost 6x since 2019. The economic crisis in Lebanon has left much of the country struggling with poverty and for those who were already disadvantaged, such as refugees and families with special needs, this has been a time of anxiety, hunger and uncertainty.

Over 60% of Palestinian refugees and over 80% of Palestinian refugees from Syria are food insecure and living below the poverty line.

With your help, we are distributing food vouchers and also parcels to provide some food security during this holy month of Ramadan.

We are grateful to our donors and our Lebanon Team for helping vulnerable families. Please help us do more this Ramadan and give with hope.
