Due to an unprecedented economic crisis, the Lebanese people are again being stripped of their basic needs including access to affordable food.
The impact of this crisis is extremely cruel on one of the most vulnerable citizens, our elderly, especially those who have no overseas support. They have lost their savings and any form of social security and for many, their children cannot support them anymore. Most of all, they are losing their dignity, by not being able to cater for themselves in their old age. The crisis has not spared small farmers or producers either. With no access to their saved funds and no assistance from the government, they are unable to grow their businesses, let alone maintain them.
“Be The Link” honors the Lebanese elderly by providing them with food baskets sourced from local Lebanese farmers. Your donation will create a double impact : It restarts the local economy by restoring the broken Link between consumers who are not able to afford quality products, and local farmers who are losing their ability to sustain their businesses and employees.
We, and you, want to Be the Link.
By donating as little as 25 USD, you would be offering back some dignity to a vulnerable citizen and helping as many as 17 families of producers, contributing towards job creation in Lebanon’s most distressed yet most important sector. Your donation matters a lot, a little can go a long way!
