Lebanon

EMERGENCY FOR

Context

For over thirty years, we have supported Lebanese children by offering them an education in the centres we create and in the schools we support throughout the country.

Today, more than ever, the children and families of Beirut need you. With Mission Enfance, take part in the food distributions to the inhabitants of the neighbourhoods affected by the port explosion.

We are also starting the rehabilitation of individual homes through financial support. With the banking crisis which impoverishes the Lebanese people, the price of a window corresponds to one month of salary.

We must act quickly, before the autumn rains...


SUPPORT FOR THE EDUCATION AND HEALTH OF LEBANESE CHILDREN AND SYRIAN REFUGEES

Lebanon is still at the heart of the Syrian conflict, hosting nearly two million refugees on its soil, who are surviving in difficult conditions as no structures or camps have been organised for these populations. The political impact of the neighbouring war is disastrous for this country with its fragile economy. Many poor Lebanese families have nevertheless welcomed refugees into their homes. The Syrians accept jobs at 70% of the Lebanese minimum wage, accelerating the unemployment of the Lebanese in their country...

Since 2012, Mission Enfance supports Syrian refugees through our centre in Deir Al Ahmar, in the Bekaa where more than 1.000 families live. We professionally train 400 Lebanese and Syrian women in technical professions (sewing, computer science, aesthetics, electricity, English). 100 women from the village and the refugee camps receive health awareness, education... We also welcome 500 children (350 Syrian, 150 Lebanese) for activities and training. The school founded in our centre offers a better education than in the Lebanese schools in the region, according to the teachers of the schools in the region... Refugee children who cannot enrol in Lebanese schools therefore have the chance to continue a normal schooling.

Goal

To provide educational and vocational training for refugee children from Syria, their families and also Lebanese youth. To provide the children of the centre with drinking water in a desert region.
