In the past few days the temperature in Arsal, located at the Syrian-Lebanese border, has dropped to below zero, with heavy snowfall covering the shelters which currently host 250000 refugee families there.
SB Overseas, in cooperation with the Green Helmets, recently monitored the situation on the ground and found that, urgent additional support is now needed to shelter these families from the cold.
With your help, we can provide each family with the sufficient materials to keep them warm during the remaining winter weeks. Each family is in dire need of a protective cover to insulate their shelter from the cold, blankets and several litres of Mazout (the Lebanese fuel required to heat their shelter).
Target and Cost per Item
-100 protective covers for the shelters – EUR 30 per cover
-500 blankets – EUR 18 per blanket
-2200 litres of mazout – EUR 20 for twenty-two litres, the amount needed for heating per shelter.
-200 Milk for children – EUR 12 for 1kg,30
Any contribution will go a long way in helping these families.
