Reaching Our Goal During the Pandemic

Refugees in Lebanon


In the Middle East, we are painfully used to emergency situations and lockdown due to political, economic, and war issues. 

COVID-19 has paralysed the world, and governments and organisations are giving their greatest efforts to control the spread of the deadly pandemic. The GHNI team in Lebanon, with its very limited human and financial resources, joins the world in the fight against COVID-19 by helping our constituency of Syrian refugees in several areas.


In addition to raising awareness of how to take necessary precautions against COVID-19, we provided instruction to children and mothers on proper hand washing. We also distributed free soap and sanitisers.

Our women and teenage girls in the sewing schools started to make masks. The initial goal was to produce 1,000 masks to be distributed to the Syrian refugees, and we are glad to tell you that we have reached this goal in no time and are now aiming to produce 2,000 more.

When visiting the Syrian refugee camps, we noticed that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) possesses limited resources. Those refugees who were able to do some work in factories or in the fields are now confined to their tents. We were able to provide for 100 families, but we need to help 400 more.

On behalf of hundreds of Syrian refugee children and women, I would like to express my deep gratitude to each and every one of you.


Thank you,
