About

Since the war started in Syria, its neighbouring country Lebanon has experienced an overflow of more than 1.1 million refugees. This massive number doesn’t include the estimated 700,000 unregistered refugees and the fact that the UNHCR stopped registering refugees in January 2015. Most of these refugees are living in makeshift tents mired in mud, while the bite of a freezing winter settles around them.

Millions are in desperate need of food and urgent aid items to help them through the winter.

its so easy to get caught up in our own first word problems and i know this is going to be an eye opener for me and i hope to be able to make a considerable difference.

I will be spending 3 days in Beirut and one day in the Beka valley. We will be helping in an Orphanage, Schools but mainly in the refugee camps distributing aid packages.
 
We operate a 100 percent donations policy. All of your donations are spent solely on what you donated for—to help the world’s neediest people. All volunteers have paid for their own travel, accommodation and any other expenses. ALL donations reach the needy in full.

 

Event details

Aid trip to provide support to Syrian refugees

I know Christmas has just been and money will be tight, but even just as little as you could manage is going to make such a big difference.

100% of all money raised will be going directly to the Syrian refugee families and children.

The plan is to raise funds for the following:

To put together and distribute food boxes and winter items at refugee camps.

To provide support to the refugees who are staying in the orphanage which was set up by the World care foundation.

We also hope to support the school project work for orphans and other refugee children by giving them the best possible tools for their education. The world care foundation has taken a keen interest in ensuring schooling is available for refugee children.

Helping refugees in need of medical & urgent help. This is crucial. Many refugees are too frightened to try and access medical help.

Helping vulnerable families with costs such as heating/basic cooking supplies etc.

Also if anyone is able to donate any of the following please let me know: these will be distributed to the while we are there.

Children:
Gloves
scarves
shoes
school stuff such as pencils, note books etc
Toys only small
