Many citizens of goodwill in Lebanon are rushing to volunteer and lend support to help Lebanon rise from this disaster that befell upon our nation. The hearts of the Lebanese in the diaspora have also turned to Lebanon, eager to help the families that have been affected by the wildfires.
Too many have lost their homes and all their belongings. Displaced and with no much to hang on to, they totally depend on the kindness of organizations and humane individuals to see to their basic needs: shelter, food, clothing, and medicine. With the winter approaching, so should our efforts to help out intensify.
These massive wildfires have encroached the green and dry in hundreds of areas in Lebanon, forcing families by the masses to flee the once-safety of their homes. These families are our families, and they need all the help that comes their way.
In Canada, Lebanese men and women are feeling the pain and the anguish that such losses and displacement could cause. They are uniting to raise funds to provide supplies directly to these affected families.
The Centre National Libano Canadien (CNLC), which is organizing a commendable and much-needed support from Montreal, is in direct contact with Lebanese charity teams on the ground so that these affected families can receive help directly and in the most efficient way.
In this state of high emergency, we encourage all our Lebanese-Canadians and the friends of Lebanon in Canada and in the diaspora around the world to join hands in supporting the way they can.
The CNLC has just launched a crowdfunding page online to be able to provide the most possible of the most urgent care: food, clothes, medications, and health services.
The CNLC will be updating regularly on both its FB page and GoFundMe page the development of its campaign and how the donations are being used in Lebanon. Any contribution can help, including sharing the message among your network. To support, please visit its page: Lebanon Wildfires Victims.
The Centre National Libano Canadien (CNLC) is a Lebanese-Canadian not-for-profit organization, legally registered in Quebec, Canada, under number 1171762561. It is located in the greater Montreal area with bridges directly in Lebanon that allow them to help Lebanese in distress. To contact the CNLC directly, email[email protected] or [email protected]
