Support our shelter in Lebanon which provides widows and orphans with food, shelter, healthcare, safety and psychological support.

The conflict in Syria has forced many children to flee their homes and to countries like Lebanon to find a secure place to lead their lives. Even if it means a safe place to live under the sky, between the rubble and rocks.
We need to prevent losing a whole generation of children from Syria. Safeguarding them and giving them opportunities to learn, developing their skills and healing the wounds of the conflict. This is vital for the future of these children and for Syria. Children who have fled Syria to Lebanon have witnessed and experienced things no child should bear. But despite all of the suffering, children have an amazing ability to recover and heal. They want to learn and have a better future.
While over 1.3 million refugees reside in Lebanon, Syria’s civil war is trampling on its’ children as easily as it is killing its’ adults. The 400,000 child refugees now in Lebanon represent a lost generation. Poverty is not their only constraint, but they have to suffer the consequences of finding a safe home to live in and find food and adequate healthcare. Many of these children are vulnerable and face exploitation not only through traffickers but also from people who look to sexually exploit them, particularly under-aged girls. The vast majority of orphan children are forced to work on the streets to survive; with others left to roam around the streets by themselves to find shelter, food and water; all in appalling and traumatising situations.
We  had acquired a disused building in the city of Saida, which is located in southern Lebanon, and converted it into homes for orphans and widows. The shelter provides not only the basic necessities but  it also delivers a critical psycho-social support programme, which will help the women and children overcome the trauma that they have suffered.
