Ever since the Islamic State (Da3esh) took over Mossul, a lot of Iraqi families have been fleeing to Lebanon seeking refuge and there are over 1300 families till now according to the Chaldean Archdiocese in Hazmieh, Beirut. These families were forced to leave in a matter of days and most of them have nowhere to go, which is why the Chaldean Archdiocese along with other churches have been receiving them and helping them out.
More families are expected to arrive in the coming days, which is why a solidarity campaign has been launched to help them out and provide them with the most basic food and sanitary products which are listed below:
- Food items (rice, spaghetti, oil, salt, cheese, etc.)
- Toiletry products (toothpastes, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, detergent, etc.)
- Kitchen materials (cooking pots, glasses, plates, etc.)
- Clothes, blankets, sleeping mats, etc.
- Cash donations (to cover the medicines and the rent)
