SHED LIGHT ON THE SILENT TRAGEDY IN LEBANON

 

Since October 7, 2023, the conflict between Israel and Palestine has spread to Southern Lebanon, leaving our community in turmoil. The shelling has led to hundreds of casualties, displacing 100,000 people and trapping countless families in their homes. Schools are closed, and over 20,000 children are affected. Our Distance Support Program kids are scared and anxious, their days filled with the sounds of sirens and bombs.

 

Our dedicated AVSI team is on the ground, responding to the most urgent needs. AVSI focuses on critical child protection services, remote psychosocial support, education, and providing cash assistance to struggling families. Watch the video below of how AVSI staff create waves of hope in Marjayoun, Lebanon.

WHY SUPPORTING CHILDREN IS A PRIORITY FOR AVSI 

 

Marco Perini, AVSI MENA Regional Manager, shares: “Peace is the solution, but achieving it is difficult. Bombs only cause trauma and despair. While parents may be divided, children are not. They need to find common ground with others, despite fears and differences. We strive to address this through our work, thanks to the generous donors who care about these families.”
