Beirut Disaster Relief
We, being of Palestinian heritage, know all too well the suffering and humanitarian need of our people. Through many decades and through all types of struggles, Palestinians have always stepped up to help and assist when needed. Our efforts and our commitments to our people continue, as you have seen with our ongoing Relief Funds to Palestine and our last Medical Mission campaign to combat COVID, which raised over $200,000 and continues to help protect our medical workers who are battling this virus. We are immensely proud of our many doctors and medical personnel, and others, who have helped in this effort.
NOW…..it’s time to help others in need….
Lebanon is faced with a horrific catastrophe that came at a time when the nation also struggles with many other issues: COVID, a faltering economy, coping with Syrian refugees, and political unrest. But the medical and humanitarian need there now is immense. We want to help, and we need to help. Many Palestinian communities and organizations are coming together in
a joint effort to raise funds through our Medical Mission. These funds will
be used in the most efficient and effective ways possible to get medical supplies, medicine, basic hygiene items, and food into the hands of those who need them most. Resources will go where the needs are greatest.
This is a big effort….
As you know, Lebanon has an exceptionally large Palestinian population, and as such, has been aided by the UPA (United Palestinian Appeal). UPA has been operating in Lebanon since 1982, has well established logistical and distribution support, and can get items where they need to go, in the best way possible—without waste. We will partner with UPA in a supporting role to gather whatever resources they need and mainly help them with funding.
Your donations and all monies raised will be distributed wisely.
Your Tax-Exempt donation is needed and very much appreciated.
We thank all of you who help in these efforts and wish you to be safe and well during this time.
