The Lebanese Food Bank collaborated with the British Lebanese Association to provide 300 families living in Akkar with food boxes to help them through this difficult economic and lockdown phase the country is going through.
The Lebanese Food Bank delivered 300 food boxes to assist the families in staying home and make the obligatory quarantine somehow easier on them. Many families lack the resources to stay safe during a worldwide health crisis like the coronavirus.
In addition, many can’t afford to stay at home and not work. They rely on day-to-day income to bring bread to the table, and the long-stalling economic crisis in the country makes it even more difficult for them to cope.
