    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.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Famine is striking in Lebanon and threatening the life of 50% of the population that is living now below the poverty line.

    Misery and poverty scenes became an essential part of their daily life!

    A father burnt himself alive after reaching a very desperate point where he couldn't feed his kids anymore. Another father is offering his kidney for sale so he can buy milk for his baby. Uncountable scenes of pregnant women, kids, and elderly looking for food leftovers in the empty garbage. Let's not talk about suiciding. Every 6 hours 1 person attempts suicide!

    And lately, a huge explosion that left by this moment 78 martyrs and more than 4000 wounded.

    This crisis is the result of many factors such as 600% currency devaluation, deep financial crisis, revolution, wildfires destroying harvests, COVID-19 wave 2, and recently an explosion that destroyed the city of Beirut and left Lebanese communities in need more than ever before of humanitarian assistance. Not to live, but to at least survive.

    Today, we are looking to help the most vulnerable people of our society, hoping to save our kids and elderly, who are helpless and in urgent need of our actions to donate.

    In this emergency, we aim to offer in-kind food assistance that includes essential foodstuffs like milk, rice, beans, etc to fill the gap in the short term until the communities re-establish their self-reliance. The distribution will be to families who have kids or elderly only and in urgent need of it.

    With only £15 we'll be able to feed 1 hungry person for a complete month. So imagine how many will survive with a generous donation. Our goal is to save 3,000 hungry people.

    Hope is their only way to ignore the rumble of their empty stomach. So Let's end their hunger!

      Hey Guys, Words can't describe this sad reality! #انا_مش_كافر "Two men committed suicide in Lebanon Friday as the country maintains its catastrophic economic collapse with no bailout in sight. A man from Hermel, 61, shot himself in Beirut’s Hamra in front of Dunkin' Donuts Friday morning. The man left a copy of his clean judicial record on his chest, demonstrating his innocence. “I am not a heretic. But hunger is heresy,” said the note. http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News/Lebanon-News/2020/Jul-03/508473-two-commit-suicide-as-hunger-bites.ashx

      Hey Guys, Since we started this initiative 14 days ago, the inflation rate of the Lebanese Lira went from 350% up to 700% in the matter of days. For everyone donated or will donate, we really appreciate your kind help. Thanks a lot!
