Distributions

In September and October we focused on getting the kids into schools, while in November and December besides deeper coverage of the Chouf district, our attention is shifted to winter items and food distributions. In this period we established partnerships with UNHCR, Saudi Relief Committee, The Emir and government of Qatar and Islamic Relief. While increasing the number of beneficiaries, we intend to spend January-March 2013 facilitating the participation of the refugees and their registration with UNHCR, as well as increasing stakeholder networking for winter items, regular food rations, WASH and shelter needs.
