In the hearts of Achrafieh, a shabby apartment has opened its doors for the poor and needy of Lebanon. Here, the sick are treated, the hungry are offered hearty meals, and the homeless can find a shelter for the night.
The world is full of wonderful people with the capacity to do good. Rita Boulos, a native of Achrafieh, is one of these gems. She has taken upon herself to help her fellow humans in need.
On the Facebook page of her house, a post in the local language reads:
“This house in Achrafieh.. has a kitchen, and the kitchen is yours. Tell the homeless, the needy and the hungry about us. Invite them to come eat at their home. If there’s bread, it’s theirs. Every day.. every day.. every day, there are meals cooked by several women from different areas… Come join us.. Come, we’re here for you…“
