Urgent collect to revive hope for children in Akkar
Children on the brink of collapse
The situation for the children we serve has become unbearable. The total economic breakdown of Lebanon has left more than 90% of Syrian refugees below the minimum subsistance level. For more than two school year, public schools have given close to no classes to most vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian children.
R&R has tripled activities during these two years. In this last school year, more than 450 children have attended the daily classes in our five learning centres, four of which are located in Akkar, Lebanon, and one in Idlib, Syria. Our school support classes in these places became de facto school replacements.
The school year has been successfully concluded in all five R&R centres, but the needs are so much bigger. We spent everything we have received and we need fresh support for our summer projects. After two years of worsening crisis, this summer might be the last chance for this generation to get back on track for their education. We cannot wait until public schools are starting again.
