The Need: This project supports women and girls at risk that are female heads of household in Lebanon. It seeks to give them practical support and network them into a community that offers them additional care.
The Solution: Monthly food vouchers to assist with food security and to release funds for other items such as education and medicine.
This project assisted 1040 people from female headed households struggling to make ends meet in Lebanon. Children in Lebanon are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including in construction and in forced labor in agriculture, sometimes as a result of human trafficking. This project seeks to support widows and orphans families in order to combat and prevent starvation and the possibility of sending children in the labor market. The project identified the most at risk families and supported these families with food vouchers.
1040 people were assisted with food for the month of October and November 2021, but more funds are needed so that these families don't have to send children into the work force, as is common in Lebanon.
