Medrar in Lebanon
The Medrar Foundation has been established in Lebanon to cater for those of us who are less fortunate; deprived of food, clean water and basic nutritional requirements, who lack the ability, resources, and/or pre-requisite circumstances to access health-care under any circumstance, or access the education required to lift one-self from the poverty trap. We at Medrar aim both to assist those who are in dire need for food, water and health-care, by providing direct and immediate assistance, yet also we aim to enable those in need to eventually help themselves. The work of Medrar is particularly focused on the short and long-term, direct and indirect impacts of human conflicts or war. To this end, Medrar had a major role in assisting in the provision of accommodation for displaced families whose houses were destroyed and in providing necessary access to health-care and food supplies. Since its establishment, Medrar has supported over 100,000 people in Lebanon and abroad. Providing accommodation and education for orphans and deprived children, most of whom – by definition – have lost the support they require to obtain both to dignified levels. Medrar had the opportunity to be the primary fund raiser of two important institutions; ‘Mujamaa Al Tahreer”, an orphanage that is accommodating more than 500 orphans and providing primary and secondary education to more than 1200 students, and secondly to the “Islamic University of Sour”, an educational institution of more than 1000 students located at Sour, South of Lebanon. Furthermore, we at Medrar are focusing on tackling the poverty levels and humanitarian conditions found in the Palestinian camps in Lebanon. To this end, we have been providing humanitarian needs for refugees in the Palestinian camps, and assisting in rebuilding and rehabilitating the unsafely built, poorly insulated, damp and leaking housing conditions in the camps – until such time when they return to their homeland; Palestine. Emanating from Lebanon, we at Medrar Foundation believe that poverty and hunger have no nationality, no race and no ethnicity, yet are indiscriminately found in all, and increasing in severity, and to this end, and under the guidance and blessing of Allah – Most Gracious, Most Merciful, we seek to obtain the necessary resources and capabilities to alleviate hunger, poverty, and enable better access to education in other areas in Africa and Asia.
