The second holy month of Ramadan arrived during the pandemic and economic crisis which is definitely worrying for many families in Lebanon. As such, Safe Spaces Lebanon organized and distributed food parcels to the families in the Naddaf center. More than ever, our sense of solidarity is tested, and it is essential that we try our best to alleviate difficulties of those around us.
We are grateful to our donors who make it possible to help those who need it and to hang on until better days.
