Responding to the needs of the most vulnerable
With its partners, MERATH fulfills thousands of vulnerable households' most basic needs. Together, we work to improve families' overall living conditions by distributing vital food assistance, much-needed winter items to help them keep warm, essential products for families, especially those with young children, and by supporting health services.
food portions distributed in 2017/18
The words "Mommy I'm hungry" killed me when I could do nothing about it. The most amazing thing is that my precious daughters are eating very good food now. Thank you for changing our lives.
mattresses & blankets, stoves & fuel vouchers distributed in 2017/18
We arrived in Lebanon in the end of fall with nothing but the clothes we were wearing. The church gave us four blankets, two mattresses and heating oil. This is what helps us survive the cold winter here.
HEALTH & HYGIENE
persons receiving medical assistance & hygiene kits in 2017/18
There were times I wished to be dead. But I'm trying to put myself together for my children, because I'm their one remaining hope. And I thank God for the local church, which has given me a hygiene kit filled with many greatly needed items.
MILK & DIAPERS
bags of milk & diapers distributed in 2017/18
Receiving the milk and diapers bags is the best thing that happened to us. Now I am able to provide for my children. Without it who knows if they would have survived?
