“I could not be more thankful,” says Abdallah. Monthly food packages made possible by generous supporters like you meant this father from Lebanon who lost his job to the pandemic could feed his family and meet his daughter’s medical needs.
Abdallah’s daughter Lamar, aged 7, relies on regular kidney dialysis. But without a regular income, Abdallah was struggling to cover Lamar’s treatment and put food on the table.
"The kids were not eating properly anymore because I am not working, so we had to rely on whatever we can get,” he says.
Abdallah’s family is among over 8,000 vulnerable families in northern Lebanon affected by COVID-19 and the country’s economic crisis who received regular food packages through our partnership with the UN World Food Programme during 2021.
