HELP A FAMILY GO FROM DESPAIR TO HOPE
Eleven year old Martha lives with her parents and 7 siblings in one of the Syrian refugee tent communities in Lebanon. The family is extremely poor with very little food or hygiene supplies and Heart for Lebanon is now serving this family each month with food and hygiene supplies.  Martha has learned about hygiene during health awareness lessons at our H.O.P.E. Center, she said “I like the health lessons because we have the chance to learn new information about how to be clean and how to prevent and treat diseases.” Before the health lessons she didn’t brush her teeth or comb her hair, and she left her nails dirty. Now, she never leaves her home before brushing her teeth, combing her hair and she makes sure to keep her fingernails clean and short. She is not only applying the things she learned but she is also teaching her family and helping them have better hygiene.
