The October 2019 protests brought to light the political, financial social and economic instability sweeping Lebanon. People are loosing their jobs in masses and hunger became a daily reality for many Lebanese. Estimates are putting the poverty level at 50% at this time of crisis.

As a response to the prevalent dire economic situation, SEAL is supporting its project beneficiaries by buying their mouneh products to help them through these rough times and in turn donating these products to other NGOs equipped to distribute them to the needy. 16 different food items: hommos, burghol, kickeck, zaatar, lentils, olive oil, Tomato sauce, tomato paste, pomegranate molasses, pickles, dried fruits, jams, organic goat Labneh with olive oil, apple vinegar and, honey and soap reached 600 families in need. A special thank you to the Zawtar Cooperative for their 50 tanks of olive oil (each 20 liters) donation in support of SEAL’s humanitarian efforts.

Distribution of the donations was managed through collaborations on the ground with the Lebanese Food Band, Beit El-Baraka and Sanabel Al-Nour, Tripoli.

SEAL has joined the many humanitarian efforts being deployed on the ground and would like to convey its deepest appreciation and gratitude to its partners in this effort.
