We urgently need your support in bringing medical aid to the people of Beirut after last night’s devastating explosion injured over 4,000 in Lebanon. Hospitals are overflowing. Lebanon’s health sector is already overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients during an economic crisis. Please help us rush 1 to 2 mobile clinics operated by our partner URDA to medically assist local and refugee victims and provide psychosocial support to amputees, orphans, and victims' families. Ambulances and clinics are licensed and coordinated with the Ministry of Public Health. If funding permits, we also aim to facilitate relief and/or urban shelter repairs with local NGO partner Basmeh and Zeitooneh in some of the poorest refugee neighborhoods of Beirut. Founded and led by Syrian and Lebanese charity workers, these NGOs are remarkable partners.

On World Refugee Day we celebrate remarkable refugee-led organizations and equity in the humanitarian space. Since our founding, we have been honored to serve refugees leading relief efforts. This is our contribution to dignity on the front lines. Thank you to our incredible giving partners who make this grassroots model possible.

Refugee Protection International is thrilled to become a featured grantee of Dining for Women for the month of August 2020 in collaboration with community partners MAPS and URDA. With Dining for Women’s generosity, this refugee-led initiative will empower out-of-school Syrian refugee girls in the remote Arsal region of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. As captured in this video, frontline refugee teachers and community workers will assist vulnerable girls, including children with disabilities, to access free, inclusive non-formal primary education and birth registration documentation. This inspiring project builds on a 2016-2019 RPI-MAPS education collaboration, supported by the American Securities Foundation, and an RPI-URDA protection initiative. Thank you Dining for Women for partnering in this journey of hope!

RPI and its local partner Kids Paradise are rapidly expanding a refugee self-reliance project to combat the devastating impact of COVID-19 on health and livelihoods in southern Turkey. This community-led project is training vulnerable Syrian mothers to produce soap from home during the partial lockdown. Up to 5,000 refugees in Antakya and Reyhanli will receive free soap produced by the trained women and COVID-19 information. During this period of the project, trainees will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms, observe social distancing, and receive local face masks and gloves. To support livelihoods, the women will also receive reusable soap production kits, emergency social stipends, and product advertising among local business and the public. Earlier this month, Turkey had the fastest rising COVID-19 infection rate and now ranks 7th globally for its number of confirmed cases, surpassing Iran (Data: JHU).

This project is critical as the World Food Program and World Bank put out dire warnings this week about the potential economic catastrophe for the global poor. We know that many of you face daunting challenges in your own communities. Thank you for your continued compassion. www.refugeeprotection.org

Coronavirus preparedness campaign: RPI fundraises to protect Syrian refugees and host communities from the Coronavirus as Lebanon announces a medical state of emergency. Refugees are among the least able to afford skyrocketing prices for sanitizers, soap, and disinfectant wipes/materials. Health workers struggle to afford similar items, N95 masks, and disposable surgical masks. RPI is preparing to support its refugee-led NGO partners in Lebanon to distribute hygiene kits and conduct community awareness raising via WhatsApp/Social Media in compliance with social distancing. Pending funding, we may also support the procurement of antiseptic gel and masks for healthcare workers, among other measures. Over the years, RPI has partnered with a number of refugee-led organizations in Lebanon including: the Union of Relief and Development Associations (URDA), Multi Aid Programs (MAPS), and Basmeh and Zeitooneh.
