EMERGENCY APPEAL FOR LEBANON.

This Ramadan, let’s unite our hearts and resources for Lebanon, a country enduring a heartbreaking crisis. With an economy in freefall and governance struggling, Lebanese families, along with Syrian and Palestinian refugees, face severe hardships. The cost of life’s essentials has soared beyond reach, leaving over half of the nation’s 5.8 million people in urgent need of food and basic care. The plight deepens with more than 1.2 million seeking access to clean water and safe living conditions. As we observe this holy month, your compassion and generosity can light up the darkest of times for countless lives in Lebanon. Your donation can be the beacon of hope and support they desperately need.

In 2023, MedGlobal was at the forefront, supporting 46 healthcare facilities and aiding over 301,362 individuals amid Lebanon’s escalating crisis.

This Ramadan, we’re taking a crucial step forward to address malnutrition, a growing concern within the community. We aim to distribute nutritional food baskets to families, directly tackling the medical issues arising from the current situation in Lebanon. Each basket, costing just $50, is packed with essential, life-sustaining supplies designed to meet the nutritional needs and improve the health of those most vulnerable. Your support can make a significant difference this holy month, ensuring that families in need receive the vital nourishment they desperately require.

Every dollar you donate helps us expand our critical programs and reach more people in need. This holy month, let your generosity be the ray of hope for Lebanon, a country in desperate need of your support. Together, we can alleviate suffering and provide crucial healthcare to those impacted by Lebanon’s crisis.

Stand with Lebanon this Ramadan. Join MedGlobal in our mission to bring relief and support to the people of Lebanon.

OUR RESPONSE IN LEBANON.

Among those affected by the multitude of crises in Lebanon, the elderly are particularly vulnerable as the lack of strong social support networks and retirement plans has created massive gaps in health coverage. In partnership with Loubnaniyoun, MedGlobal began an at-home health program for the elderly people in Beirut, providing health consultations, medications, treatment, and health education for 335 patients. Through this program, 300 individuals were vaccinated and 10 community leaders were trained, going on to give 50 COVID-19 awareness sessions. Additionally, MedGlobal worked to strengthen the crippling health system amid the economic and health crisis by providing over 200 pieces of medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, examination beds, ECG machines, blood pressure machines, and oximeters, among others, across 11 primary health centers and 5 hospitals in Beirut, Tripoli, and Koura. MedGlobal also partnered with Loubnaniyoun and the Social Advancement association to deliver over 300 nutrition kits for vulnerable families in Beirut.

To support Syrian refugees in Lebanon, MedGlobal delivered critical winterization supplies, including hygiene kits and blankets, for 660 Syrian refugee families in Arsal. This support was critical as refugees in Arsal live in poor conditions, with tarped tents that often cannot resist the harsh winter weather. Working with Multi-Aid Programs, MedGlobal provided nearly 9000 dental health consultations for Syrian refugee children and held COVID-19 vaccine awareness and education sessions for 2,200 Syrian refugees in the Bekaa Valley.

On August 15, when a gasoline tank exploded in Northern Lebanon, killing 28 and injuring at least 79 people, MedGlobal responded within the first 24 hours of the explosion by delivering critical PPE to two hospitals to protect health workers as they treated wounded patients. These hospitals, located in Beirut and Tripoli, have specialized burn units and were receiving the majority of burn patients from the explosion.
