Walking with families toward a sustainable and hopeful future
Beyond answering families’ basic needs, we encourage our partners to walk with families and communities to move toward a hopeful future through livelihoods programs. MERATH has on-going income-generating and recovery projects in Syria and Lebanon to begin the transition from relief to rehabilitation and resiliency for communities: agriculture assistance, savings groups, micro-lending, vocational assistance, and small business development. In 2016/17, 363 families benefited from sewing, agriculture, and other livelihoods programs.

I am so happy and proud to be responsible for the sewing program of the church. I teach 10 women how to sew while trying to find ways of generating income for us to live in better conditions.

We did not dream something like this could happen. This project will help the entire community and gave us a new hope in the future. We had the land, the water and the expertise. All it needed was this first push you gave us!
