Cash-for-rent for 800 families affected by the Beirut Blast

Four months after the devastating Beirut Port explosions, many people remain displaced and are living in temporary accommodation, shared shelters or at the homes of their friends and families. Countless families continue to live in their damaged homes, despite risk of the buildings collapsing, due to the fear of losing their right to return.

PCPM emergency medicine and rapid response specialists see patients in a mobile clinic, because hospitals do not have enough space or are completely inaccessible. They also help in the streets. People who are coming to them either did not go to the hospital shortly after the explosion or were injured while removing the rubbles. The action for Beirut continues at PCPM.ORG.PL/BEIRUT

Over PLN 620 000 (USD 166 000) to help families after the Beirut explosion

Thanks to the generosity of Polish citizens, and the enormous media support, we raised over PLN 620 000 (USD 166 000) to help families after the massive explosion in Beirut. It has allowed us to organize two aid transports. We have been helping on the spot from the very first day of the tragedy: within a few hours of the blast, we started an action for Beirut, and within a few days from the tragedy, in-kind assistance reached the needy. The action continues at PCPM.ORG.PL/BEIRUT

Ponad 620 tysięcy na pomoc rodzinom po eksplozji w Bejrucie!

Dzięki ofiarności Polek i Polaków i ogromnemu medialnemu wsparciu zebraliśmy ponad 600 tysięcy złotych, by pomóc rodzinom po potężnej eksplozji w Bejrucie. To pozwoliło nam zorganizować już dwa transporty z pomocą. Pomagamy na miejscu od pierwszego dnia tragedii: w ciągu kilku godzin od wybuchu rozpoczęliśmy akcję dla Bejrutu, w ciągu kilku dób od tragedii do potrzebujących dotarła pomoc rzeczowa. Akcja trwa na PCPM.ORG.PL/BEJRUT  

Ecological crops and agricultural cooperatives in Lebanon thanks to help from Poland

A leaky and old sewage system in Lebanon harms the environment and takes away jobs, crops and food. Polluted fields cannot be exploited and the inhabitants, apart from the lack of access to clean water, live in an environment constantly flooded by waste. The PCPM Foundation is repairing the water and sanitary infrastructure. We also support Lebanese agricultural cooperatives and strengthen the export of products to the European Union

Trainings for field officers of the Lebanese mission of PCPM are underway

As part of the ongoing preparations to resume activities in informal refugee settlements, field officers of the Lebanese mission of PCPM are currently attending a training on universal standards relating to shelter assistance.

PCPM will provide shelter for 25,000 Syrians in Lebanon
