Activities Despite the Lockdown

Refugees in Lebanon

January was not an active month due to the lockdown in Lebanon. The situation is very bad. Twenty-one percent of the examinations are positive. On top of that, we had a strong snow storm. The camps were affected badly. Our medical and dental clinic are both still working.

Making the Most of COVID-19 Lockdown

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Lebanon’s COVID-19 numbers are increasing insanely. We had a lockdown again for two weeks, but with some exceptions. GHNI’s team managed to benefit from this closure, preparing, decorating, and preparing some new tools for the classes. Children are always feeling at home at our centre. They always enjoy coming, learning, having fun, and doing more activities regardless of the situation we are all going through.

Restoration of Hope Amidst Suffering

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Maya* is one of our sewing course graduates. She is a Syrian refugee from Homs. She lost her parents in Syria during the war, and her brother lost his two legs fighting with the Syrian army. Finding herself lost and alone, Maya decided to move to Lebanon. She had a very hard time at the beginning, but later she married a man who became our carpenter teacher at the House of Sara.

Blast Devastates Beirut

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Forty days have passed since one of the largest non-nuclear explosions in the history of the world devastated Beirut. As we watch the daily news, the scenes seem more like a Hollywood film than reality. Victims and casualties are everywhere, and yet the visible damage is just the tip of the iceberg.

A Gift of Gratitude

Refugees in Lebanon

 

I was working in the office today when Abila* came suddenly from her class to see me. She was holding a small gift. She gave it to me and said, "I love you." I cried when I opened the bag and found a small white paper with a simple letter and some hearts.

The whole world is facing the worst crisis since WWII. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis is also hitting Lebanon in the midst of our political and financial upheaval. TFF was and is still facing a hard time to withdraw money from our bank account.

Dignity in the Face of Adversity

Refugees in Lebanon

 

*Carmina is one of our sewing class students for this semester. She and the other 12 women will graduate at the end of this month. Carmina is 24 years old. She got married when she was 18 years old and sadly became pregnant after just three months. She had a baby girl, but her husband refused his daughter and so did her parents. She couldn't register her as her own, so her father registered her as his.
