    Story

    i Matbakh El Balad

    The Lebanese community is struggling under the strain of a deteriorating economic crisis that has been exacerbated by the COVID19 situation, making it impossible for many families to put food on the table. Many in Lebanon have stepped up to help their community, and one of these groups is Matbakh el Balad.

    Matbakh el Balad started after October 17 when a group of volunteers came together to prepare and distribute food - free of charge - to protestors who were on the street around the clock and in need of sustenance and warmth. Since then, and as the economic situation continues to deteriorate, Matbakh el Balad volunteers today are providing sustenance, daily, free of charge, to anyone in need of a meal.

    They are now working on providing food boxes, containing essential food items for 5-person families. Each box costs around £20. They have distributed a total of 523 boxes across Lebanon so far and aim to provide 500 boxes per month.

    Their work has been fueled from the beginning by generous volunteers who donated time, money, items, and meals to keep their efforts going. Together, we can help Matbakh Al Balad continue to provide meals to families in Lebanon.
