The objective of Roofs That Shield Beirut is to rehabilitate 2,050 residential and commercial units in the peripheral neighborhoods that incurred damage due to the Beirut Explosion. Those units include 80 - 120 sqm houses of lower-income families, small shops, pharmacies, and clinics, and fall under three scopes, minimal, medium, and severe intervention.
As per our digital value-based needs assessment, marginalized and vulnerable groups, including women-headed households, vulnerable women and girls, the elderly, as well as people with disabilities, will be given priority. Moreover, small businesses in the areas such as small retailers, pharmacies, and clinics will also be given priority to speed up their “going back to business” process. This is in line with Nusaned’s mission to empower the marginalized Lebanese communities to live sustainably.
August 2020 till September 2021
Nusaned is focused on the “Goods in Need” program in the aftermath of the explosion and consequent rise in a variety of needs of affected individuals and families.
We are in dire need of funds to be able to provide families with immediate aid in terms of food, hygiene and clothing essentials. Our aim is to continue supplying individuals and families with vital necessities until they can get back on their feet.
