Donations are needed under Adopt a Family Project
Your donation can provide food, medical care, education, and other essentials to families in need!
The economic crisis in Lebanon is worsening, with poverty and economic inequality on the rise. Hundreds of thousands of Lebanese citizens have become impoverished, adding to the 1 million (1 in 4 people) estimated to already be living under the poverty line. These communities are sustained only by a strong social infrastructure of giving.
The COVID-19 outbreak has created further challenges, mainly related to deficiencies in adequate shelter and healthcare. The closure of many establishments has led to widespread job losses, making it even more difficult for people to afford basic necessities.
Your donations, no matter the size, can make a considerable difference to families in need.
Adopt families all over Lebanon by paying 50 USD per month and committing for a period of one year.
Nusaned’s long-term ambition is to gradually move away from an aid provider to supporting micro-enterprise initiatives. We are working together with affected communities, our network of 200 volunteers and focal points, as well as 20 local NGO partners to come up with creative ideas to always support all Lebanese communities in need.
Since early 2020, our ongoing distribution efforts through the Goods In Need program have increased due to the deteriorating economic situation, and have diversified from food ration boxes to other essential goods to further help sustain the livelihood of underprivileged communities and complement the work already undertaken by local partner NGOs.
To date, our teams have distributed:
Since December 2019, Nusaned’s ongoing Goods In Need program has been distributing basic goods to impoverished families to help them transition out of crisis and into a sustainable livelihood. By partnering with local and international NGOs, we are able to diversify the goods we distribute and create work opportunities for local enterprises.
