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.

Thank you and God bless you!

Upcoming House Renovation - Keushkerian Family

(News & Events)

STORY
It is a family of four: a father, a mother, a teenage boy and a grandmother.
The father sells coffee for a living, using a very old coffee machine on the street corner of his house in Bourj Hammoud. He earns a maximum of 15,000LBP per day, and has to pay for the material (coffee, water, plastic cups, sugar, etc.) which amount to 10,000LBP per day. He suffers from diabetes and gangrenes in his legs and had to amputate his toes. He is currently suffering from many infections and has no means to pay for his medicines, which cost 200,000LBP each month.
The mother found a job two months ago as a cleaning lady in a school. She earns 400USD per month.
The boy, 12 years old, is a student in a semi-private school. He needs tutoring classes.
The grandmother is suffering from hypertension and osteoporosis and needs chronic medicines. The family is unable to ensure all those needs. 

HOUSE CONDITIONS
The family's rundown house is located in a very popular street in Bourj Hammoud. It is an old construction which has not been renovated since the grandma was a young girl. The house is composed of the following:
- A tiny living room on the street level, which lets wind and water enter the house in the winter. The grandma, the mother and the boy also use this room as their bedroom.
- A bedroom, with a broken double bed where the father sleeps, and a broken closet.
- A rundown kitchen with a sink and counter so old they could crumble at any point.
- A very old toilet, a sink that can also crumble at any point, and a damaged water heater without shower.
- The rooftop infiltrates water during winter.
- The wall painting is falling apart, all windows are old and broken, and the main door is cracked. 
- Electric cables are dangling all around the house, and spark off whenever rain comes in.

The insalubrities of the place present a serious health and security danger for the whole family.
Because of the living conditions, the family members are depressed and without ambition. There is no place for the family to gather for a meal, and no space for the boy to study.
Providing better living conditions for this family would transform their life.
