Donate a voucher for Grandma Minolia


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


Grandma Minolia lost everything in one year – her beloved husband died and her entire life’s savings completely lost value when record inflation hit Lebanon. Minolia has someone to live for. She has children and grandchildren, but with the country on the brink of bankruptcy, the whole family found themselves in the same situation.

Minolia has had to move into a one-room flat that is rundown and cold. The children, although doing their best, cannot provide for their mother’s basic needs.

Getting food, medicine or fuel is a huge challenge. Even more challenging is paying the rent for a flat that, although cold, still provides some shelter. Here, a pack of the simplest painkiller can cost the equivalent of several hundred zlotys.

Since last year, we have been distributing vouchers for food and fuel oil to the poorest Lebanese affected by the economic crisis. Thanks to the vouchers you fund, ailing seniors who are unable to take up any work can not so much make ends meet as simply survive in a country where no form of state care functions. Donate a voucher to Grandma Minolia, with which she will be able to buy food and fuel oil to heat her modest flat!
