Helping Families in Need

One World, One Heart.

Lebanon's collapsing economy has plunged 55% of the population below the poverty line.

Support families in need with $200/month for six months.

Your donation will be delivered in monthly USD bills and will cover basic needs for an entire family.

How It Works

  • We vet families in need across Lebanon and list their profiles below with names redacted for privacy

  • To donate, select a family, click the button and enter your credit card details on Paypal. We will charge you $230 every month for the next 6 months (total donation = $1,380)

  • $200 go to the family and are delivered in USD bills, cash in hand. $30 cover the costs of vetting, payment and distribution of USD bills. See the cost breakdown
