The following message is from my university class fellow, who knows this foundation personally:
Urgent help needed!
Our Syrian brothers and sisters are freezing in Lebanon on the border in Arsal.
These families lost everything at home, now they live in make shift tents in Lebanon, that the storm has damaged. 215 camps are in urgent need of support.
We are working with a very trusted volunteer partner
Shabab Lil Ummah on the ground, aimming to deliver 40 litres of oil to each family. This oil will last them 5 days‼
We need to act fast as another storm is predicted on Monday.
40 litres of oil will cost £20.00. They will use this oil in their heaters which will help keep their children warm for 5 days.
Please support and help us reach our target to support 200 families.
£4000 will provide 80,000 liters of fuel and will support 200 families (around 1000 people, mainly children) to stay warm for 5 days each.
