Today we celebrate Grandmother's Day


Escalating since October 2019, the political and economic crisis is driving Lebanon to the brink of bankruptcy. The tragic situation has been exacerbated by a gigantic explosion of chemicals stored in Beirut’s seaport. The middle class has virtually ceased to exist. Educated citizens are fleeing hyperinflation, rising unemployment, power cuts and fuel shortages.

  • Since the beginning of the crisis, the Lebanese pound has lost more than 90% of of its value
  • Food prices increased by 400 % between January and December 2020.
  • GDP fell by 20.3% (2020)
  • 78% of the Lebanese population (3 million people) live in poverty. Extreme poverty has affected 36% of Lebanese (1.38 million)
  • there is a nationwide shortage of essential medicines
  • prolonged power and fuel shortages (up to 20 hours a day) are paralysing the daily lives of the Lebanese
We provide medication, food and basic hygiene and sanitation products for


chronically ill and destitute people


Aida is a grandmother, living in Lebanon – a country where the value of the local currency drops so much every day that buying a loaf of bread puts a serious strain on the household budget.

A searing cold seeps into the rooms that Aida and Jeanne, her daughter, cannot heat. They can no longer afford to buy fuel oil. The cold doesn’t help with the chronic pain that Aida’s grandmother has been dealing with for years.

Today is Grandmother’s Day, a holiday that expresses our gratitude for the effort put into raising our grandchildren. Aida’s granddaughter is still too young to understand the difficulties the whole family faces. Her gift is the sincerest loving child’s arms with which she hugs Aida on this cold January morning. It is a kiss on her grandmother’s cold cheek. We dream of giving her one more gift – fuel oil and really effective painkillers that she has not been able to afford since the crisis broke out in 2019.

If you have a spare place in your heart for Grandma Aida, we ask you to buy a voucher for fuel oil or a package of medicines to give as a beautiful gift today.

Speech therapy for Gisele

Gisele's mother has not been able to find the reason why Gisele does not speak and experiences seizures during which she falls, becomes rigid and cries. Lack of money for diagnostics meant that she could only wait for the seizures to pass. We could not accept such powerlessness.
