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!
