Ramadan food boxes

Raised by 25 people in 20 months
The Syrian war has been going on for five years now.
In Aug 2015, official UN figures put the death toll at 250,000 with 12 million Syrians being displaced. Between 1-1.5 million Syrian refugees have managed to escape and remain in Lebanon. At the same time Europe has been pre-occupied with what they have called their own 'refugee crisis'

Between June 6th and July 5th Muslims around the world celebrate Ramadan, a month to fast, to be grateful for your blessings- a time of festive calm that will be highlighted everyday by the breaking of the fast at sunset.
Many families will not be able to do so. As in every other month of the year they will struggle to bring enough food on the table, let alone live up to the tradition of treating their children to new clothes and gifts by the end of the month.
We want to help out. We, that is a group of Syrians and Internationals, based in Lebanon and around the world would like to fill the Iftar tables of some families in the camps in North Lebanon's Akkar.
So help us help others- any amount will go a long way and be part of the bigger idea.

Also feel free to ask questions, make suggestions or even join us in our work on the ground (should you be in the area).
We are looking forward for your contributions of all kinds!



La guerre syrienne est entrée dans sa 6e année. L'Europe n'a été préoccupée que par sa "crise de réfugiés". Mais qu'en est il des 1 à 1,5 millions de réfugiés syriens au Liban, coincés sans perspectives d'avenir ?

Ces jours-ci, les musulmans du monde entier célèbrent le Ramadan, un mois de jeûne qui permet l’élévation spirituelle et l’affirmation collective de la foi ainsi que la commémoration de la révélation coranique. Ce temps, à la fois calme et festif, culmine chaque jour avec la rupture du jeûne au coucher du soleil.

Pourtant, de nombreuses familles ne pourront pas le vivre. Comme durant le reste de l'année, elles auront des difficultés à amener de la nourriture à la maison et encore plus à honorer la tradition qui veut que les enfants reçoivent nouveaux vêtements et cadeaux à la fin du mois.

Nous voulons les aider. Nous, c'est un groupe de syriens et d'internationaux, basés au Liban bien sûr mais aussi à travers le monde, qui aimerait garnir les tables de l'Iftar de familles dans les camps de l'Akkar, au Nord Liban.

Aidez-nous à les aider. Chaque centime compte.

Vous pouvez suivre les mises à jour ainsi que les photos du projet via notre groupe Facebook .

Questions, suggestions et même visite sur le terrain (si vous êtes dans la région) sont les bienvenues.

Merci pour eux.

So- a little clearification on the procedure.

We have reached our goal now which does not mean that we will stop- oh no. We will go on.
We will send the money that we have until mid next week to Lebanon with a friend who will then give it to our helpers there for them to get going.
We decided to wait until a fair amount was gathered to keep transfer costs low.
All money that comes in after the 18th I will personally take to Lebanon with me and we would have an Eid distribution of some sort with this.
If there are any questions at all with regards to this please do not hesitate to get in touch!
