In December 2016, LWR shipped Quilts, Personal Care Kits, School Kits, Baby Care Kits and Fabric Kits to our partner in Lebanon, American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA).
ANERA has been working to support Syrian refugees for the past four years by addressing basic needs, health, education and other socioeconomic issues through various projects. Your gifts and contributions were used to improve the living conditions of Syrian and Palestinian refugees in North Lebanon: Akkar, Nahr el Bared camp, & Beddawi Camp, in South Lebanon:Ein Helwe Camp, & Tyre, and in Beirut:Sabra Gathering , Tarik Jadida, Shatila Camp, Bourj Barajneh Camp. The gifts were received and highly appreciated by the beneficiaries as they helped in saving some expenses, allowing families to maximize the benefits of their scarce cash resources and personal savings to buy other life necessities.This distribution reached about 13,000 recipients in total in which 3120 were men, 4810 were women, and 5070 were children.
In addition, ANERA was also able to mobilize the Contingency of stocks of quilts and hygiene Kits to benefit about a 1000 displaced families during the 2017 Spring of the recurrent armed clashes that erupted in Ein Helwe refugee camp.
