Lebanon

The authorities and residents of the Lebanese capital are beneficiaries of the „Cash for Work” program implemented in Beirut by PCPM

The authorities of the capital of Lebanon emphasize the high effectiveness of the help that PCPM brings to the city through the "Cash for Work" program, i.e. commissioning minor infrastructural and cleaning works to the local community. The beneficiaries of the program are also the poorest inhabitants of Beirut – both Lebanese and Syrians – for whom work provided by the PCPM is often the only source of income.

A lack of bread, power, and fuel – Lebanon under crisis. They need organizations like PCPM

Another crisis hits Lebanon – an energy one. Some Beirut residents only have access to power for 1 hour per day and a lack of bread as a direct outcome of a country-wide shortage of flour. In these circumstances, they desperately need humanitarian aid.

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty – help us give aid to people who need it most

A lunch hall in Ethiopia, therapeutic food for kids in South Sudan, aid for families suffering from the ongoing Lebanese crisis – those are only a few actions that the PCPM Foundation does to help the poorest across Africa. Please help us in this uneven fight on the International Day for Poverty Eradication.

Thanks to PCPM’s support in Lebanon, honeybees pull people out of crisis

In Lebanon, a country in which the PCPM Foundation educate beekeepers. Those trainings could generate a source of income for them. The courses’ attendants are not only the Lebanese, but also the refugees from Syria, who had been living in the Lebanon for the last decade.

Food for Lebanon. New humanitarian program of the PCPM Foundation

Single mothers, elderly people, people with disabilities and at risk of malnutrition. For them, the PCPM Foundation is starting a food program in Lebanon. Over the next few months, it will be delivering food parcels to the most urgently-needed residents of a state that is on the brink of economic disaster.

Lebanon: financial crisis

Lebanon is enduring a severe and prolonged economic depression. The effects of the economic crisis are being felt acutely by citizens, but also by local governments which are unable to provide their residents with access to basic public services due to the lack of subsidies from the state budget and the drastically falling collection of municipal taxes. Thanks to funding from Polish Aid, the PCPM Foundation continues its development mission in Lebanon.

One year after the explosion in Beirut

On August 4, 2020, 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate improperly stored in the port of Beirut caught fire and exploded, rocking the entire city, shattering glass in buildings, and causing extensive structural damage in the port. At least 200 people were killed and many more injured in collapsing buildings or from breaking glass. PCPM Foundation was the first Polish organization to start a fundraising and to start helping those in need.

PCPM foundation secured informal settlements from flooding

Flooded tents, wet mattresses and ankle-deep water. Every winter the inhabitants of Sammaqiye informal settlements in northern Liban are fighting water that’s flooding their shelters and are struggling with repercusions of the extensive floods year after year. This season was different- first time in years, thanks to the PCPM foundation’s construction work in the field, we managed to control and avoid the flood damage.
