Covid-19 is continuing to spread around the world, with nearly 120 million confirmed cases and 2.6 million deaths across 200 countries. We are working with countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia to help distribute food and hygiene emergency packs to alleviate the pressures the pandemic has had on people and their families.
APRIL 2021 EMERGENCY MEAT AND FOOD PACKS IN LEBANON!
Nearly every day, the snowball effect of Lebanon's economic meltdown brings new developments. Prices have surged for both food and services -- the situation is verging on hyper-inflation -- and fuel shortages have plunged the country into darkness, with power outages lasting almost 24 hours. Political inaction and the devaluation of the Lira, Lebanon's official currency which has lost 85% of its value, have contributed to a growing wave of anger, frustration and desperation. Supermarkets can no longer afford to buy or keep stock having immeasurable consequences and no corrective systems put in place to help the Lebanese people get back on their feet. The crisis, combined with the coronavirus lockdown, has put at least half of the Lebanese population under the poverty line with all parts of life (health, economic, education, employment and nutrition) now affected due to the pandemic.
