Lebanon has been in economic and social turmoil for the past 8 months as the country has descended into poverty, despair and chaos. We will be using all the funds raised to purchase 6mm Tampered Glass from SAINT-GOBAIN (https://www.saint-gobain.com) in Columbia and have it shipped to Lebanon ASAP.
Funds will be allocated to following tasks:
- Buy as much 6mm Tampered Glass as possible and have it shipped to Tripoli Port ASAP
- Cut glass to the standard size of each building and have aluminum frames fitted
- Work with local window installers to remodel homes that can accommodate them
Here is some math behind the process: Considering the average home uses 10m of Glass
Finished Aluminum Sliding Window = $48 per meter
Aluminum Still Window = $38 per meter
10m of finished glass windows with Aluminum ($480) + Shipping ($20) + installation($50)= $550 per Home (Average)
With $50,000 we will help 90 families approximately .
For your donations of, we would be able to help the following amount of families:
$5,000 - 9 Families
$10,000- 18 Families
$15,000- 27 Families
$20,000 - 36 Families
$30,000- 54 Families
Goal : $50,000 - 90 Families
Go X(goxapp.com) is helping with outreach/fundraising and working with a local independent NGOs by the name Hydromena (https://hydromena.org/) and Al Ghina (https://www.alghina.org/) that are helping with ground logistics like receiving the shipment, processing the glass and distributing it accordingly.
Sending large amounts of glass to Lebanon with a small amount of money for processing and installation will be a safe form of help, as big amounts of cash tend to make it into government hands. My people are in pain, please help if you can. Thank you.
