fundahope is driving positive change in the Lebanese community. See below some of our hope stories thanks to fundahope!
This campaign tells the story of Nadim, who experienced a life-altering accident when he fell from a scaffold. As a result, his daily tasks became extremely challenging. Despite facing financial difficulties due to the economic crisis in Lebanon, there was a glimmer of hope when Nadim was approved for a trial treatment in France that could restore his autonomy. However, the cost of the treatment was approximately $140,000. The campaign successfully raised $51,085, which greatly influenced Nadim and his family. Not only did your contributions give Nadim hope, but they also provided hope to a whole community of individuals with special needs, as he was among the first Lebanese people to undergo this operation.
The Acsauvel, a Lebanese NGO, successfully launched a campaign to support children with special needs in Deir Tamish. Despite challenges including delayed government support, the pandemic, and currency devaluation, the campaign has greatly impacted the lives of 125 individuals by providing education, well-being, and support.
Every contribution, whether through donations or sharing the request, was highly valued in making a difference and sustaining the employment of teachers and therapists.
This heartfelt plea for support shares the story of Nancy, who has had hearing issues since childhood. Her parents previously raised funds for her life-changing cochlear implant surgery, but unfortunately, the device has stopped working after over 15 years.
With Nancy's father working abroad and the challenging situation in Lebanon, her family was in desperate need of support.
Contributions, no matter their size, made a significant difference in restoring Nancy's hearing and allowing her to pursue her dreams.
Rami successfully ran from the South to the North of Lebanon, covering 470 Km in 7 days. Additionally, he challenged himself to run up and down Kilimanjaro (5895 km) in 14 hours. This time, he ran for "Mission Lebanon" to support Chef Tina Wazirian with food distribution throughout Lebanon. With your donations, we were able to make that difference!
Thanks to the compassionate individuals like yourself and your generous donations, Jean underwent the crucial surgery he desperately needed.
Thanks to the urgent campaign, we successfully raised almost the entire amount needed to support the critical condition of a 3-year-old girl at AUBMC - American University of Beirut Medical Center. Dialysis and ICU were required for her treatment. The initial amount needed was $10,000. Natasha was diagnosed with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS).
All Lebanese and Lebanon-lovers around the world were invited to practice the sport of their choice over a minimal target of 19.8 km, lapses, summits, etc.., as the area of Beirut is 19.8 km2
The campaign was able to collect 60,285$!
Rawad El Hayek, a 24-year-old Lebanese man, was born with a congenital syndrome called "hemifacial microsomia" which resulted in partial facial paralysis and unilateral hearing loss. Throughout his academic and personal life, he faced a lot of challenges due to his hearing loss in his right ear.
In the midst of the worst economic crisis to date in Lebanon, Rawad successfully started a fundahope crowdfunding campaign to implant a bone-anchored hearing aid that would help him regain his hearing sense in his right ear. The campaign was successful in raising the major amount needed for the implant.
