In Lebanon, one-third of the population is considered poor according to United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).
This translates to around 1.5 million individuals living on less than 4 dollars a day or 120 dollars a month, struggling to make ends meet from rent, food, and healthcare, as illustrated by the UNDP’s ‘Rapid Poverty Assessment in Lebanon’ in 2016.
Human Appeal Australia through its offices in Lebanon is launching a campaign to help those in need. We may not be able to eradicate poverty however we can ease the lives of some, by providing them with means of survival like food, clothes and medical aid.
We call upon you to stand in support and solidarity with the disadvantaged families of Lebanon by donating during these tough times.
