Bonheur Du Ciel is a Lebanese charity that is running a cafe in Lebanon to help the homeless as well as the Syrian refugees. They offer good food for free to help those in need. There are currently 1.5 million Syrian refugees registered with the UNHCR. However, the estimated number is closer to 2 million – which is an equivalent to just under 50% of the population in Lebanon. The United Nations has been cutting back on their programs and aids for the refugees putting more pressure on the limited Lebanese government and local NGO’s. This cafe is doing its part and serves about 200 people a day.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
