Providing food baskets to help feed families who are suffering from malnutrition.

What are the needs?

LEBANON has the highest per capita population of refugees in the world, which puts an enormous strain on social services, infrastructure, and employment. There remains pressure on displaced Syrians to return to Syria, but many are not able to safely or voluntarily return. The deteriorating economic situation, impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, was only further exacerbated by the drop of 90% on the value of the Lebanese Lira. This situation is at its worst in over 100 years.

SOUTH SUDAN Famines, floods, civil war, and mass refugee migration have left South Sudanese people in complicated situations over the past several years. The current COVID -19 pandemic continues to add to the misery and fear of people living in migrant conditions. These households are among the most vulnerable and are struggling to feed their families.

LATIN AMERICA is home to many countries that struggle with food insecurity, but the COVID-19 pandemic continues to make matters far worse. For countries that rely on tourism, the economic shutdown has caused great hardship for families that depend on this industry to bring food to the table. In Bolivia, strict protective measures have made it very difficult to work or even to gather necessities such as food, while El Salvador’s pandemic restrictions have significantly reduced job opportunities in the informal economy, which 70% of the population rely on. 

What can be done to help?

In LEBANON, monthly food baskets are being provided to 766 vulnerable Syrian refugee households (approximately 3,830 individuals) through the local church, covering about 50% of household monthly food needs.

In SOUTH SUDAN, food assistance is being provided to over 700 households (approximately 4,598 individuals) in Gomjuer, Aweil West County who have been affected by flooding and famine on top of adjustments after a six year civil war.

In LATIN AMERICA, food baskets are being supplied to 1,500 vulnerable families across Bolivia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Cuba and Costa Rica. Churches also provide spiritual care as concerns about finances, isolation, and health issues rise. Pastors and their families have suffered more than most.

How will your raised funds be used?

Funds from this project help purchase food baskets that consist of staple pantry foods, such as rice, pasta, flour, cooking oil, seasonings and spices, canned tuna, fava beans, lentils, cheese, tomato paste and tea. Your financial help will support over 3000 families by providing food to help reduce hunger and malnutrition and necessary spiritual care through the local church.
