EMERGENCY AID FOR THE LEBANESE POPULATION SUPPORT TO EDUCATION AND HEALTH OF LEBANESE CHILDREN

Context

Since 2019, Lebanon has been in a deep descent into hell. The country's bankruptcy, the collapse of the Lebanese pound, the corruption of the government and the "ungovernability" of the country are having a terrible economic impact on the Lebanese people. Today, 70% of the Lebanese population lives below the poverty line. One hour of electricity per day, hours of queuing for increasingly expensive petrol, the suspension of state subsidies causing price inflation for salaries in LBP that have not increased for 2 years and are equivalent to a full tank of petrol per month or the payment of an electricity bill. The middle class no longer exists.

Goal

Relieve the lives of the Lebanese people, while waiting for the situation to evolve,
Support private school, which guarantees a good education for children.

Since the explosion of the port of Beirut, in August 2020, Mission Enfance has been permanently operating emergency distributions to pupils, families, teachers... We operate via the educational centres that we have been supporting for nearly 30 years in Lebanon.

 

Below is the testimony of Perla, 20 years old, a biology student at the University of Beirut in Lebanon, who testifies to the emergency aid distributed by Mission Enfance. Fatherless, she lives alone with her mother. Perla suffers from chronic asthma. Her mother's salary amounts to 1.500.000 LL (69€). The monthly treatment to cure Perla's disease is 800.000 LL (37€)...
