LE Solidarity is fundraising to complete emergency winter clothing packs to go out to refugee kids in Lebanon at the end of November. EDIT: These packs were unable to get to Lebanon in the end due to aid blocks and were redirected to go on a container to Syria with Muslims In Need.
For the last month we have been collecting items for, and making up packs of winter childrens clothing to send to refugees in need in Lebanon. The refugee situation in Lebanon is very volatile, and volunteers on the ground struggle to get aid where it is needed. We are also heading headlong into Winter, and temperatures in Lebanon are plummeting. To get aid out efficiently we are working with other East Midlands refugee action groups to make up and send pre-made labelled packs to be handed out swiftly.
We have a huge number of packs that are almost complete, but missing one or two items. Our most needed item is winter coats.
We are fundraising to buy the additional items needed to finish these packs, and help hundreds of children survive the winter.
LE Solidarity runs with zero overheads and so you can be sure all of the money donated will be spent immediately on these items. To track the progress of this campaign please join us on our facebook group.
Refugees will die from the cold in Lebanon this winter. We just want to try and keep the number of children to a minimum.
Thank you so, so much for your support!
