Help Children in Lebanon Attend School

Lebanon has faced many difficulties this year. They have witnessed the collapse of their currency as well as seeing the prices of basic goods skyrocket. Banks have limited withdrawals because of a shortage of US currency. Many are struggling to barely scrape by. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the August 4th explosion of ammonium nitrate stored at the Beirut port aggravated the situation. As a result, over 60% of the population is living in poverty and 300,000+ are homeless. The port was the country's main source of food and medicine. Lebanon's corrupt government isn't providing aid to those still struggling 2 months after the bomb.

All education in Lebanon has a fee or tuition. Public schools are overfilled with students while many can not afford the tuition of private schools. I've partnered with a small international youth organization called “Fight the Silence” to raise funds to support 4 families who are unable to send their children to a school called “Saint George’s Bsalim” this year. These families have faced health impediments such as cancer, epilepsy, and heart diseases which has placed a heavy burden on their finances. Our goal is to send 8 children to school for the 2020-21 school year. The cost of the annual tuition is $600 per student, which will also provide the children with all the supplies and materials they will need such as textbooks, pencils, coloring supplies, etc. 

While surviving a pandemic, battling an economic crisis, as well as recovering from the fairly recent explosion, Lebanon's children need our help and attention. Any donations, be it large or small, are very appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness!

-----
All proceeds and donations will be sent directly to an administrative member of the school and will be used to pay the tuition of the students in order to attend Saint George’s Bsalim school in Lebanon.

There are 4 families, each with 2 children. At a cost of $600 per student, we hope that you can all help us provide a total of 8 children with an education. 

If you have any questions, you can contact me or reach out to the youth organization, Fight The Silence, on instagram (@_fightthesilence). Thank you for all of your support!
