Become a Volunteer
One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the community. Volunteering allows you to connect to your community and make it a better place. Even helping out with the smallest tasks can make a real difference to the lives of people and organizations in need. Check out this video to learn more about volunteering from our team!
A Winterization Emergency Response for Lebanon
Thank you to the support of LDS Charities in partnership with ADRA International the ADRA Bekaa Team was able to distribute fuel e-cards to 300 families in Zahle District where each E- card consists of 140 liters of diesel for heating. In addition to this, 600 blankets were also distributed to 300 families in Zahle District!
Food, Shelter or Education?
The multiple crises have forced many families to prioritize basic needs, such as food, shelter and health, over education. In addition, school costs are high and leave families with an impossible choice. Since the pandemic and economic deterioration, more than 1.2 million children in Lebanon have been out of school.
However, ADRA’s education learning centers assist up to 600 students yearly. Our education programs ensure that vulnerable students and students at risk of dropping out are allowed to learn and thrive.
