A FOOD PACK FOR LEBANON COSTS £40

For nearly two years now, Lebanon has been assailed by compounded crises—specifically, an economic and financial crisis, followed by COVID-19 and, lastly, the explosion at the Port of Beirut on August 4, 2020. Of the three, the economic crisis has had by far the largest (and most persistent) negative impact. The Spring 2021 Lebanon Economic Monitor finds that Lebanon’s economic and financial crisis is likely to rank in the top 10, possibly top three, most severe crises episodes globally since the mid-nineteenth century.

In a report written by The World Bank earlier this year, the bank blamed what it called “deliberately inadequate policy responses” from the governing elite for worsening a financial meltdown “likely to rank in the top 10, possibly top three, most severe crisis episodes globally since the mid-nineteenth century”. More than half the population is now probably below the poverty line, said the report. The 12-month inflation rate has risen to 157.9% in March this year from 10% in January last year. Unemployment has risen to nearly 40% late last year from 28% in February 2020. Access to healthcare has become limited.

Our first aid distribution took place in response to the explosion in Beirut when we distributed hundreds of packs to struggling families.

We now have a regular food pack project in Lebanon.
