“We weren’t always this poor,” one Beirut mother says. “But everything is so different now.” The August 2020 Beirut port explosion and the COVID-19 pandemic have caused Lebanon’s already collapsing economy to implode. Many parents can’t afford more than the bare necessities; even school supplies are a luxury now. With the help of the Joint Christian Committee of the Department of Services to Palestinian Refugees (JCC-DSPR), parents can provide their children not only with school supplies, but also with toys and games, so the adults in their families can use what they have to purchase food.
Your Gift will purchase toys, games, and school supplies to give a child stability and comfort in a very uncertain time.
