Under- A -Wear Awareness campaign

September 3rd, 2016 Posted by News No Comment yet

Since the Syrian Civil War began, the number of Syrian refugees increased tremendously reaching around 5 million. Half of those affected are children. Children affected by the Syrian conflict are at risk of becoming ill, malnourished, abused, or exploited.

People, all over the world, are donating food and clothes to refugees children but no one is cognizant of other basic needs like undergarments. In fact, many children don’t own any underwear. Sanitation and cleanliness are increasingly important in refugee camps, and underwear are a necessity in maintaining proper hygiene. Wearing underwear also maintains privacy.

Because sharing is caring, the Modern University for Business and Science (MUBS) organized an awareness and a donation campaign under the name “Under-A-Wear” that will be held on September 17th from 10:00am-2:00 pm in Sonbola Learning Center in Hawsh Moussa, Anjar, targeting Syrian Refugees children in Bar Elias Camp and neighboring Camps.

Hariri Foundation conducted awareness sessions to the refugee kids.
Teach for Lebanon (TFL) volunteers prepared some educational activities with the help of MUBS Public Health and Social Work students.

And then there is us……
FoodBlessed provided lunch meals for these wonderful kids
FoodBlessed provided a hearty healthy meal to 200 Syrian refugee participants 🙂 special thank you to our hunger heroes who was in charge of this event especially HH Ali 🙂 and Ibrahim, also Eliott Bazergi and @woodenbakeryFanar.

ZwZ FoodBlessed Outings

September 2nd, 2016 Posted by Volunteer Opportunities No Comment yet

FoodBlessed’s Monthly Zaatar W Zeit Outings are a monthly happening all thanks to one of our oldest Blessed Partner Zaatar w Zeit!
FoodBlessed’s Hunger Heroes will be giving 50 underprivileged kids a day full of fun-filled games, story telling, face painting at Sanayeh Garden and lastly wrap the day up with a yummy food at one of Zaatar w Zeit’s branches (in Hamra or Zalka)
Some of these kids have never been outside their neighborhoods or do not have the privilege to dine out!
The kids have a GREAT time, always. No exceptions!
The kids spend fun times at the Sanayeh Garden with lots of activities and face painting and story telling. Then we mount the bus to Zaatar W Zeit – Zalka for yummy food after a long day of fun!

You can volunteer with us either at:
-The Sanayeh Garden where you will be getting a quick training on the activities that we prepared for the kids and games from Noor from Lebanese University Hadath Red Cross Youth Chapter.
Kids will be arriving at 4pm. Then each volunteer will be in charge of a game. Other volunteers will be in charge of the kids which will be divided into 5 groups! So EVERY volunteer counts and we need a lot of volunteers this time because the Lebanese Red Cross are short on volunteers.
That and face painting !
-Zaatar w Zeit, Zalka/Hamra where we will be in charge of distributing food for kids and making sure all is in order. The ZwZ waiters always appreciate our help smile emoticon 50 kids is a lot you know hihi.
We might offer you a ride in the bus if you don’t have a car and would like to join us!
If you are interested in volunteering with us, give us a shout to [email protected]!
