Update: HAAA Refugee Fundraiser was able to raise $28,000 USD to help serve 1000+ refugee families in Lebanon. As of last week, 570 food baskets have been distributed to Syrian and Palestinian families and will continue throughout Ramadan until 1000+ families (over 6000 people total) have been reached!
A huge hand goes to (SCOW) in Tripoli, Women’s Humanitarian Organization (PWHO) in Tyre, members of the HAAA Board of Directors, and Arab Conference at Harvard incredible team of 40+ volunteers who have and will continue to coordinate this effort across Beirut, Tripoli, Tyre, Ramallah, Boston, and HQ’ed in London. As the fundraiser has ended, we will still be selling our Lebanon Collection for those interested. Thank you ACH for allowing us to be apart of this amazing cause!

4/14/20: In light of COVID-19, Arab Conference at Harvard (ACH) fundraiser has necessarily been postponed, yet the needs of refugees remain, and are escalating seriously. COVID-19 has unleashed extreme challenges in refugee communities, with food insecurity becoming more critical by the day.
Prior to the pandemic, refugee families suffering from poverty were already disproportionately impacted by the economic crisis in Lebanon. With the COVID-19 lockdown, many have no access to food, and are facing increased homelessness, medical shortages, and the looming threat of COVID-19. In particular, refugee parents are desperately unable to feed their children. Each purchase helps feed a family for 2-4 weeks.
