Winter Aid for Refugees from Syria

Children of Al-Jalil Center found a great partner with MECA based on our shared goals of helping displaced people and those in need. Together, we are meeting basic needs of families from Syria, helping them to survive and live with dignity. —Ali Taha, Executive Director, Children of Al Jalil Center, Beqaa Valley, Lebanon

In 2016, MECA and partners provided vouchers for food, hygiene supplies, warm clothes, and heating fuel for more than 2,000 refugees from Syria in Lebanon.

Winter in Lebanon

It gets very cold in Lebanon with icy wind and rain, and sometimes snow. You can imagine, how difficult—even dangerous—this is for refugees living in tents and flimsy shelters—especially infants and small children.
