Who is Lebanon Strong?
Lebanon Strong is a Canadian Relief Campaign that was founded by Dina Bakhit and Hamsa Diab Farhat and it is built on a people helping people framework. Our team is closely working with trusted organizations and initiatives on the ground in Lebanon to receive in-kind donations coming from across Canada.
We are currently supporting the Amel Association, Makassed Association of Beirut, and Caritas Liban efforts through providing them with essential supplies to be distributed to communities, individuals and families impacted by the blast and the worsening economic situation.
To date, we have sent 11 containers of non-perishable food items, baby products, new children's clothes, basic hygiene supplies, first aid items, and school supplies. Two of these containers are filled with firefighter gear and will be donated to the Beirut Firefighter Regiment, specifically Karantina, Dahyieh (west Beirut), Saida, Tripoli Firefighter Regiments, and the Civil Defense.
Lebanon Strong is devoted to providing the people of Lebanon with essential necessities to help alleviate their suffering and will continue to do so in the coming months.
