Weʼre raising £30,000 to Winter relief for refugees in Lebanon

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Story

Storm Norma has hit Lebanon with heavy rains, snowfall and freezing temperatures. It has damaged several Syrian refugee camps in the country especially in the Bekaa valley and North. Thousands are in need of emergency assistance and many refugees had to spend the night standing up. Some families were stuck in the tents under the snow.

The Smile and Olive Foundation UK has launched a crowdfunding campaigne to raise money and support its sister organization in Lebanon: Basmeh & Zeitooneh for Relief and Development.

B&Z accommodated around 200 individuals on the night of Tuesday, and distributed the following core items: Blankets: 270 , Mattress: 170 ,Hot meals: 200 ,Bread bags: 120 , water: 205

After the storm our field team in the #bekaa valley, accompanied with an engineer, was assessing what can be done to mitigate the damage of flood before the upcoming storm next week. We are in the process of digging trenches around some camps to drain the water, and raising the level of tents a bit.

Later on, when the weather is stable, we will work on rehabilitating the tents and providing what the storm has destroyed.

Every contribution counts.

    Due to your generosity, Basmeh & Zeitooneh continues to work in Bekaa camps where our team installed a new water system that allows the water to be collected from inside the camp and prevents the flooding of the tents. The new system has been applied at Al Jammal camp in Bar Elias this week and the next step will be installing additional protection layers on tents to protect them against storms. Remember, winter is still here and we still have so much work to do Any contribution matters!

    The first batch of clothes and other donations reached the people of Bekaa! Basmeh w Zeitooneh's team distributed clothes and covers, and provided heating fuel for more than 300 families so far. A big thank you to every individual taking action. Winter hasn't ended yet and many families are still in need for warming materials. If you like to take part in this initiative, please help us reach our target goal!
