There are over 1.5 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, most living in makeshift camps. One of these camps in Ketermaya, Lebanon houses 300 children, widows and widowers. All of these refugees come from the poorest communities in Syria, a country which they love so dearly but had to flee to survive.
To help Syria's Kids in a refugee camp in Ketermaya, Lebanon reclaim their lives by providing basic needs, a healthy environment and education to help them realize their greatest potential.
Food, water, medicine, fuel and clothing are in serious deficit for the families and children in Ketermaya. Currently vats of water are delivered each day but the quantity does not meet their daily needs and the water must be boiled before drinking. Food is not plentiful or balanced making the coping skills of the children and families living in a refugee camp even more challenging. Lack of fuel means light and heat are not available in evenings, during the most critical times of need. Medicine is sparse and administered for only the most desperate of needs.
A monthly $29 donation supports the cost of food and fuel, for one refugee each month. When we combine your donation with support from other donors, all the children and families benefit because their whole environment is being transformed.
A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT
Sanitation, sewage management and pest control are in dire need to support a healthy environment. Lack of rodent control results in children being bitten at night exposing them to the risk of disease and infection. Risk of cholera and other life threatening illnesses are prevalent as a result of the poor conditions of the camp.
We are raising funds for long-term initiatives to help solve these issues. We can transform Ketermaya into a healthy living environment for these deserving human beings. Donations at any level does make a difference.
The Syrian children living in Ketermaya crave education.
We are determined to help fill this need and grow their minds to realize their potential. Our goal is to identify partners to provide a holistic, well rounded primary school education through integration into formal schooling whenever possible and introduce contextual and relevant curricula and teaching methods to deliver informal education at the camp.
In addition providing strong psycho-social support and rehabilitation within the framework of community engagement with other children who care.
We are raising funds for long-term initiatives to provide education and needed social support for these refugee families and children. Donations at any level combined with the support from other donors helps to realize transformation and possibilities for these refugees.
