There has never been a worse time to be poor in Lebanon. A political crisis followed by an economic crisis followed by a health crisis. Please donate to help feed the hungry.
The situation in Lebanon has hit rock bottom. An estimated 60% of the population are unemployed. The rest are earning half of their salaries if not less. Banks have imposed capital controls that have made things worse for everyone.
The desperation has caused multiple suicides. We can help prevent them. We can end the hunger. If a go fund me campaign can help a Lebanese girl get $10,000 to replace her car that was burned by pro government thugs imagine what a go fund me campaign can do for the hungry. I am asking you to donate whatever you can. There is a very high chance your contribution will save a life. If you can’t contribute please share this campaign.
Who will the money go to?

Who am I?
I am a Lebanese American living in New York helping get the money from the expat community to the organizations who will put it to the best possible use. I feel that we the expats are one of the few that can help in this difficult time. You can check my Instagram account @joeymoawad and my linkedin profile www.linkedin.com/in/jmoawad
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any concerns and I will try to address them.
How does the money get there?
The money will come into my US account and then get bank transferred to Lebanon. I will post bank transfer and donation acknowledgement receipts here for full transparecy.
