With all the hardships Lebanese are going through, 1.500 children are now at risk of losing access to education and their future, and thousands of children in the region will no longer have access to school. Two schools, Saint Coeurs School and Notre Dame Machmouche School - both located in Jezzine, Southern Lebanon and the only two schools serving 52 nearby villages - will be forced to close their doors unless they receive urgent and immediate help: Both schools have existed for over 100 years, and have historically been subsidized by the Ministry of Social Affairs, but have stopped receiving any aid since 2016. Without assistance and without your help, both schools will cease to exist. A donation of 4,000,000 Lebanese Pounds (an equivalent of 180 USD ( fresh) approximately) can finance the tuition of a child for an entire year. Please donate today to offer these children and Lebanon a better life and future, which they truly deserve to see. Our ultimate goal is to raise a total of $90,000 in order to keep the schools running for the upcoming year. We are raising these funds through Loubnaniyoun, an NGO founded in June 2012 under Decree Number 1140, that supports education through scholarship programs and that will take zero administrative cost on your donations. Every penny of your donations will go directly to the two schools. Please help us transform the lives of thousands children. We would sincerely appreciate any support you can offer to help Lebanese in need.

Help Noha fight Pancreatic cancer
Help Noha fight Pancreatic cancer With the permission of Noha’s family, we are setting up this Medical fund as she fights for her life. Nine years ago, Noha was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and today, what Noha needs for a 90% chance of becoming cancer-free are 4 courses of Nuclear treatment “177 Lutetium Dotatate” for her Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor. Each shot should be given to Noha once every 2 months. The government and the Ministry of Health in Lebanon have failed to provide basic needs to their people, including cancer medicine. So now we have one chance to raise 16.000 USD to get these courses for Noha, who has neared the end of her treatment and is about to get better, but now suddenly there are no more drugs left. For now, she has spent money to buy drugs at a much higher price on the black market. But she will not be able to afford to do this for long. On 26 Aug 2021, cancer patients rallied in front of a United Nations agency in Lebanon, in protest against a severe medicine shortage plaguing the country. Raising the slogan “We want cancer treatment,” families of cancer patients staged a sit-in near the Grand Serail on Thursday evening, “to protest the genocide of cancer patients,” demanding that medication for their treatment be secured. Can you believe it? In Lebanon, cancer patients -- with all their worries -- are forced to go down into the street and protest to demand medicine. So today, Noha’s friends and family, all together, we have decided to step up to help this dedicated mother fight the toughest battle of her life. We need your generous help to make that possible and reach people all over the world. YOUR SUPPORT, REGARDLESS OF THE AMOUNT, CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!

Hello All, I'm Jean. Thank you for taking the time reading this, your kindness will sure make a difference. I'm one of thousands struggling in this country, but each one have his own story. I didn't want to share it, but I couldn't handle it by myself anymore. I was afraid from the truth, afraid from who is around me. I was fired from my job for finding out my sexual orientation, I was sexually assaulted, bullied, I was bitten, humiliated, shamed... And this start from the age of 8. I couldn't tell anyone, cause when your family is going through poorness and financial problems no one is in need of another devastating news to add to their shoulders. Everything happened to me, I kept it to myself. I went through bad days, I was emotionally drained, I tried to suicide couple of times... and believe me that no one was there, and even I I told someone, no one would've helped me. I found myself back this year, and my Mom and I decided to live alone, she had her share of this madness also. A friend of mine rented us an empty apartment, and offered me a job which I will start on January 3rd. This fundraising will help my Mom and I to: -Buy beds and some basic furniture and appliances -Food to keep us going these two months -Medical tests for my mom -Psychiatric help -And an amount of the money donated I will be paying it forward to a family in need during the holidays. It doesn't matter how much pride we have, asking for help is difficult, specially if you were on your own your entire life, trying to manage it day by day. Mom and I send you Heartfelt Thank You and Gratitude to whatever amount is donated, We will be remembering each and every one of you in our prayers. And for those who read this, Thank you, and even if you did not donate please please please take time to help others, listen to them, embrace them... It is great to receive but it is greater to give. and always remember that Your Kindness Can Make A Difference. Thank You

Buddha's Pack - Urgent Appeal for Help
Buddha's pack is a boarding and rescue initiative based in Lebanon. It houses over 100 dogs. It is owned by a middle aged lady who works as a one-woman-show. Despite the cumulating crises (economic crisis, Beirut explosion... etc.) leading to difficult/unprecedented times and affecting all sectors of life, she never gave up on any of the dogs under her care, even sometimes at her own expense. Many were abandoned at her doorstep, while others were left there by their rescuers/guardians who were no longer able to afford their boarding and food fees. She ended up having over 60 dogs of her own. Her sole income was from the boarding facility. She had to move from her old location over a year ago because neighbors were bothered by the dogs. However, given the rush that her previous landlords put her in, she had to move to a place that has been causing her problems from day one and is less than ideal. She urgently needs to relocate before winter since the place is not ideal for summer, let alone winter time, and we need your help to achieve this goal and be able to cover the rent of the new location (as well as related construction costs) and the basic needs of the dogs (food, blankets, vaccines, microchips, water, deworming and defleaing pills... etc.). Anyone is welcome to visit tante Pascale's current location and witness her treatment of the dogs with their own eyes. Kindly donate. If you can't donate, share! Thank you in advance! Please, do reach out to us on +961 3 127 650 for more info!

Help shelter dogs and more strays get medical care
With the failing economy, many people find it hard to care for their own needs let alone those of animals. Since the start of the corona virus many people dumped their pets and now most shelters are beyond their capacity. Help small NGOs like Refq give their dogs their yearly vaccines and help more dogs in need. Diseases like Rabies, parvo and distemper which are fatal to dogs can be prevented easily. Mange; a terrible skin disease can be treated with proper care as well and many painful accidents can be treated. But it all takes some care and funding. By sharing a small amount, together we can save lives. Nuhad Sheikh Founder of RefQ مع الاقتصاد المثكل والتعب، يجد الكثير من الناس صعوبة في رعاية احتياجاتهم الخاصة ناهيك عن احتياجات الحيوانات. منذ بداية فيروس كورونا ، ألقى الكثير من الناس حيواناتهم الأليفة ، والآن أصبحت معظم الملاجئ فوق طاقتها. ساعد المنظمات غير الحكومية الصغيرة مثل "رفق" في إعطاء كلابهم لقاحاتهم السنوية ومساعدة المزيد من الحيوانات المحتاجة. يمكن الوقاية بسهولة من أمراض مثل داء الكلب والبارفو والنِسَّل القاتلة للكلاب. الجرب (مرض جلدي رهيب) يمكن علاجه بالرعاية المناسبة أيضًا ويمكن علاج العديد من الحوادث المؤلمة. لكن الأمر كله يتطلب بعض الرعاية والتمويل. من خلال مشاركة كمية صغيرة ، يمكننا معًا إنقاذ الأرواح. نهاد شيخ "مؤسسة جمعية "رفق

Voice for the Voiceless
For more information, please contact me: +961 76447506 Gender hierarchy in Lebanon silences women and prevents them from identifying their rights and expressing their dignity. The reality is that marginalized genders, specifically anyone who identifies as a woman, are exposed to various forms of violence which affect their physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health! Not only that, but are also fundamentally believed that they are inferior. Yet, they still remain silent! Furthermore, some survivors choose to stay silent and refuse legal services in order to preserve their homes, their children and their dignity, or because they fear socio-economic, cultural, familial, sexual, verbal, psychological, or physical consequences. And even if they tried speaking up, they will often be the ones to be blamed: "Aya se3a kenit barrat l beit, kenit sekrane, kenit lebse asir..." This sheds light on the unreliability of the ISF and their lack of providing a secure environment for women residing in Lebanon to confide in. That is because the laws do not recognize domestic violence as a crime; therefore, they economically and psychologically undermine women that attempt to leave the household. For this reason, we aim to provide a voice for the voiceless! We believe that silence against violence is suffocating! For this reason, we believe that women should be empowered and learn the importance of self-love and self-acceptance to be able to recover from violence and trauma! By creating a safe space for women through the implementation of our project, the dedication of legal institutions to solve their cases, and the coordination with existing NGOs and activists, we hope to provide them with the tools and strength needed to keep violence away! We refuse women to become victims of violence!

Volunteering FIFA ARAB CUP 2021
Hey friend!! I'm so excited that you're, here, interested in my campaign. I am taking part in the FIFA ARAB CUP 2021 and volunteering for the second time in Qatar! (I volunteered first in the launch of Al Wakrah Stadium 2019). Having the opportunity to represent my country LEBANON in the FIFA ARAB CUP 2021 is such a great honor to me especially that the selecting process was not easy as it went through many stages and several interviews until I was selected to volunteer in the tournament. Volunteers that are able to participate in the FIFA ARAB CUP will have higher chances to be selected to volunteer in organizing the FIFA World CUP 2022. And sure the sparkle will be a lot more fabulous if accompanied by my furry friend Macdus. Great news!! I rescued a junior husky a couple days ago. She was dumped in the streets starving and having severe skin infection. I want to make sure if I were to have the chance to volunteer FIFA ARAB CUP that she will be in good hands taking great care of her. For this incident, part of the funds will go directly to keeping her happy recovering and getting healthier while I'm abroad. I can't wait to reunion with all my friends of different nationalities and backgrounds that I got to know during my first volunteering experience in Qatar 2019. I'm super excited to gain even more friends, experience and enjoy a new adventure with Macdus. Unlike last time, I am responsible for all expenses during the event that will take place in Qatar, Doha and I'm required to attend between November 27th and December 19th. I will be volunteering in the Spectator Services Information Point at the Education City Stadium. I'm forever grateful for your consideration in taking part and supporting me in my next experience. Thank you in advance for sharing my campaign, you are a great support!

Support Fresh Graduates through Arneli Art Gallery
"Being an artist and pursuing my Master’s degree in Plastic Arts has given me a great insight on the challenges that artists face upon graduating. There has always been a great difficulty in knowing how to approach a gallery, to market and eventually sell an artwork. Having had the chance of working in the finest galleries of Beirut, I have decided to sum up all my experience and knowledge in this field and to contribute back to my fellow artists and showcase something exotic to the collectors. Due to the ever-growing emphases of online marketing and digital platforms in promoting not only products but even ideas, the art scene, like all other markets, has shifted in a remarkable way from actual galleries and spaces into numeric and digital forms. Thus, I have decided to create a virtual platform called “Arneli Art Gallery”, which is a tribute to my family name, to help and support emerging artists and fresh graduates and give them the chance to be explored by art collectors and art institutions, from all over the Globe. The young generation of Lebanese and Middle Eastern artists is full of talent and intellect. But unfortunately, not a lot of light is shed on them. New talents are always hesitantly embraced and invested in. Through my platform this is exactly what I aim to do. To give a chance and create an opportunity to those who have decided to dedicate their lives for Art and need this first, yet full step." Thus with your support, i would be able to turn the life of 15 artists around through implementing creative and targeted marketing strategies and make the Lebanese Art Scene fly higher than ever!

Help strengthen Christian Love Voice in Lebanon
Alamghar means ‘pen of laurel’ in Arabic. Alamghar is a Lebanese website that serves as the voice of Christian love during dark times, and is currently run entirely by volunteers. We ask for your help to keep this website alive. Please read our story & how you can help, below. Our story Hi, I am Guitta. I have dedicated my life to spreading the word of God through media. Earlier this year, the religious media company I was working for shut down in Lebanon, due to the multiple crises the country has faced recently. The impact on the Christian community in Lebanon has been significant in the past few years, linked to the national economic and political collapse, as well as to the changing dynamics of the Middle East region more broadly. • Lebanese people of faith today, more than at any point since the Civil War, need a source of inspiration and hope (including, but not limited to, the aftermath of the port explosion a year ago), a source from which to learn about their religion (now a minority in the country), and a source of feeling connected to one another. • After the media company’s closure in Lebanon, there was no such source online in Lebanon. So I took my own leap of faith… • Together with 2 volunteers (who happen to be blind), and without any funding, I launched Alamghar earlier this year. We hoped to be that source for Lebanese Christians and other believers. • We have seen a clear hunger for what Alamghar provides, as our follower base has rapidly grown from a handful in March to ~21,000 today. Our readers have told us that [when they feel a loss of hope, they come to Alamghar to read about people overcoming challenges through faith; when they feel anger about what has happened in Lebanon, Alamghar’s stories about love helps them find peace. Our goal is to help as many people as we can, and we believe that we can reach over 250,000 faithful in the next couple of years. Alamghar is fortunate to have a benediction from the Maronite Catholic Church, as well as a strong base of loyal readers. What we are lacking, however, is funding to survive this crisis. How you can help To survive, Alamghar needs $19,240 for the next 12 months. What will these funds go to? • The current volunteers who have co-founded this site need an income to support their families through the economic collapse (where finding employment is difficult for most Lebanese, and especially so for the blind), and these funds will provide that. • The website also needs to be able to meet demand and reach even more people, and these funds will cover hosting, boosting, and maintenance, and will provide an income for the additional talent that will help with journalism, editing, and graphic design. In short, the $19,240 will support 5 team members & me, and most importantly, help Alamghar continue to promote peace & spread God’s love. Will you help?
