HELP A FAMILY GO FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE
A Syrian mom of three children tells how her left their village and walked over the mountains into Lebanon. It took them a week, walking at night, sheltering in the trees when they could, so as not to be a target for the snipers. They made it. However, many of their friends did not. Some killed by bullets along the way; others died from drinking the impure water. ‘When we arrived in Lebanon at first, many agencies came to help us. But now it’s just Heart for Lebanon,’ says the father. Heart for Lebanon is providing the family with monthly food parcels. A month’s supply of cooking oil, soap, and essential foods such as pasta, tins of vegetables, tinned meats and fish. Each package lasts the best part of a month.
