The goal has been reached! You can still donate to show your support.
Ahla Fawda is reaching out to Cisco to help in their mission to support the Civil Defense during the holy month of Ramadan.
Our partnership with Ahla Fawda allowed us to provide COVID care to hospitals, clinics and individuals during the pandemic. The NGO also visited 11 Civil Defense centers and distributed PPE's, donated a rescue board, and helped in the fixing of two ambulances. As we know from previous collaborations, the Civil Defense is not supported or helped by any entity. They are made up of volunteers that give their time and face the frontlines of all emergencies.
These volunteers put funds from their own pockets to sustain their centers. They truly need our help and support.
Two Civil Defense centers, Ras Beirut and Karantina, have reached out to us to help in providing food parcels to the volunteers working in each center (approximately 75 people).
Food parcels contain dried goods to feed a family of five for up to three weeks. Ahla Fawda are including more items as a special Ramadan package. Each package will cost between $15-18 as of now, as prices keep increasing.
Ahla Fawda has a target to feed a minimum of 1,000 families for Ramadan. The situation here is declining and the demand is increasing for basic needs. CISCO has been an incredible support, and we would be so grateful for any assistance that you are able to give us.
