Story

Got to have HALIB!

Follow #artistgotmilk on instagram to buy art against your donation!

Halib means milk in Arabic.

In Lebanon fresh milk is rare - imported powder milk has become luxury.

Financially stretched to breaking point by financial + political turmoil, the COVID-19 crisis & August 4th Beirut explosion, families are struggling to buy milk for their children.

There is nothing more heartbreaking than a parent not being able to afford milk for their kids, directly affecting their growth.

Help us help them.

This December, no matter their nationality or religion, no kid in Lebanon will go thirsty - NOT ON OUR WATCH!

We have contacted NGO's with 2 simple questions: Do you need Milk? if yes, how many bags? Based on the data gathered we put a target of 5,000 bags. 1 x 2kg bag per family.

£4 (€4.5 / USD 5.2 / CAD 6.5 / AUD 7 / LBP 45,000) buys 1x2kg bag of milk

£30 ( €33 / USD 39 / CAD 51 / AUD 55 / LBP 312,000) buys a case of 7 bags

No donation is too small. Every bag counts. Every child counts.

(For donations from Lebanon, in LBP - please contact us directly)

beneficiaries

We have identified the below NGO's, shelters, orphanage, camps, and private civilians that are helping families in need - throughout Lebanon.

The Milk will be distributed through their channels, in the 4 corners of Lebanon:

Beirut: Lebanon of Tomorrow , Basecamp , Sisters of Charity , AGBU , Missionaries of charity , private groups such as 'Tantet el Ashrafieh'.

North Lebanon: Tripoli through private group, Social and Cultural Association of Mashta Hassan / Akkar.

South Lebanon: El-Buss refugee camp, various private groups in remote villages.

Bekaa Valley: SAWA association , Sawa for dev + aid.

the situation in numbers

55% of Lebanon's population is under the poverty line , 23% of which are living in extreme poverty (Escwa)

Minimum wage: LBP 30,000 ($3.75) per day / LBP 675,000 ($84) per month

Supermarket price for 2 kg bag of Milk = LBP 44,500 (October 2020)

1 bag of Milk = aprx 6.5% of monthly minimum wage salary

    Got Halib for Akkar? 970 out of the 5000 pledged bags will be distributed to Lebanese & Syrian families in 20 villages in Akkar / North Lebanon. With a total of 320 villages, Akkar is one of the most remote, beautiful but also poorest parts of Lebanon. This list was hand written by Rima Al Rachid. Rima came highly recommended by an NGO's when I was looking for a Akkar 'fixer'. Out of her village, Mashta Hassan she reached out to village elders, social & municipal workers to gather a list of families, with kids in need.

Granddaughter of a social worker, I grew up in a loving - generous home. I decided in 2018 that the best way to pay it forward was to share my birthday wishes with underprivileged kids. Thanks to the support and generosity of family and friends, it became our yearly tradition.
