Direct Aid to Palestine, Iraq, and Lebanon
Since 1988, the Middle East Children's Alliance has delivered more than $20 million in aid to Palestinian, Iraqi and Lebanese children.
2014: Aid to Lebanon
This year MECA provided grants to community organizations across Lebanon to purchase rain boots, blankets, warm clothes, school supplies and shoes for hundreds of children who are Palestinian and Syrian refugees seeking shelter in Lebanon. We also partnered with ANERA to send 3 containers of baby soap and shampoo to be distributed to community organizations and hospitals and clinics working with refugees across Lebanon.
2014: Aid to Palestine
MECA staff and volunteers in Gaza purchased and distributed food packages and hygiene kits to displaced families in Gaza even as bombs were still falling this summer as well as additional food packages in the spring when food aid was cut to hundreds of families in Gaza and this fall when food insecurity increased after Israel's attacks. We also provided grants to long-term partners in Gaza the Red Crescent Society and Union of Health Work Committee to purchase medicine and medical supplies to treat injured and sick patients free of charge and to Afaq Jadeeda Association to provide clean water, hot meals, and psychosocial support to displaced families in the middle camps area.
MECA is planning to send more shipments to Lebanon in the coming months. Please make a secure, online donation to help us send life-saving aid to Palestinian and Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
