Since the start of the recent Gaza conflict situation, ACT volunteers have looked at various ways to support victims of this situation. We have a team in Lebanon that has been supporting Palestinian refugees in camps in Beirut. We have offered hamper food bags and hygiene packs to many families and individuals and have also helped to improve living conditions by purchasing clothes and household appliances.
We found that the living conditions in the refugee camps are in many cases challenging the well-being of the camp residents, physically, mentally and emotionally. It is very common that whole families live together in just one room, the rooms themselves are at times not even larger than 1.5m2. We have seen houses without roof, leaking walls, mouldy furniture and in cases the sewage smell coming from the bathroom spreads across other living areas also.
In this crisis situation ACT Foundation mainly focused on Palestinian refugees, but if we came across extremely poor and underprivileged and/or disabled Lebanese families then we extended our support to these families also, especially as they at times have been living in inhumane conditions for nearly ten years.
For donations to support the aid effort we have a secure donation portal via Mohanji International Foundation at the following link (purpose – select the Humanitarian Projects option) :
