JOSEPHINE’S STORY

Josephine lives by herself nearby, in a run-down ground-floor flat in Achrafieh which is in the worst possible condition: no water, no electricity, no heat, no window-panes, and the unpleasant smell of the filthy apartment greets your senses before you even step inside....

Case 1:
The mother of N. Iskandar, was admitted on January 2 to AL Zahraa hospital in Khaldeh, and was kept in intensive care until she passed away on January 27, 2020.

The hospital is requesting the full settlement of the bill, noting that charges not covered by social security is up to 4,000,000 LBP.
The hospital will not remit the mother's body for proper burial to the family before the bill settlement. This fact is causing so much pain and distress especially to her daughter.
We kindly call on your contribution to help the family proceed with the burial.

 

Case 2:
Bassma's team was shocked with unfortunate news:
One of Bassmas families lost almost everything they have last night, due to a fire in their modest home that burned down everything. It will take financial means to rehabilitate, renovate and refurbish it.
Every single donation would be most welcome, financial or in-kind (cookware, kitchenware, etc.) to help us restore the damage done in the house, and help this single mom of two have a decent shelter for her and her children.

It is a family of five: two teenage boys, a 6-year-old girl, a mother who is under psychiatric treatment for a severe depression caused by the family destitution,  and a father, who is unable to work since 2005 due to an incurable illness “Guillain-Barré Syndrom”.

 

The family’s house is on the ground floor, and is in a miserable state: the painting on the house’s four walls is coming off, all windows don’t have glasses, and the main door is cracked. Water and mud infiltrate the house during rainy days, soaking the entire floor. During the winter season, the mother puts bed covers on the windows to try to keep off the cold wind and the rain.

 

The house consists of three rooms: a kitchen, a bedroom, and a small living room.

 

The five members of the family sleep together in the bedroom. It is a small and narrow room, with barely enough space to contain two beds. The eldest boy sleeps on the wet ground to keep enough space on the old mattresses for his siblings and parents.

 

The kitchen ceiling is made of a toll board that leaves ample space for rain and insects to come in. The kitchen’s worktop and sink are so old they threaten to crumble at any point. Above them are a few closets -- the family’s only storage space. They contain their food, a few kitchen utensils, and the children’s clothes. The insalubrity of the place presents a serious health and security threat for the whole family.

 

Because of the living conditions, the children are often sick, missing school and often feeling too tired to play. They lack space to study and don’t have the luxury of any privacy.

 

This house is next to the building that collapsed in Fassouh, Achrafieh, only a few meters away from the richiest neighborhoods of Beirut. Providing better living conditions for this family can turn their life around.

 

BASSMA has taken on the task to renovate, repair and refurbish this run-down house.

The project will cost around USD 4,000 and we are counting on your generous contributions to turn the life of the family members.

You can make an online donation or contact us at 01-38 39 38/ 03-068519.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
