OUR YEAR IN PICTURES AND NUMBERS
donate lebanon online
With support from USAid, PACE and Nabad Incubator, HelpForLeb project was selected to create the first Lebanese crowd-funding platform to channel financial donations from the vast Lebanese diasporas and Lebanese locals to social, environmental, and humanitarian causes and NGOs in Lebanon. There are an estimated 20 million Lebanese living across the globe (ref-Wikipedia) —about five times the size of the population in Lebanon. Many Lebanese expatriates remain connected to their families and native villages. The online hub will channel their love for their country into active support for a cause or organization, thus enabling them to contribute to solving some of the country’s causes.
HelpForLeb.com is an online hub for social, environmental and humanitarian causes across Lebanon that benefits individuals, communities, villages and charities. Our mission is to raise awareness on shared challenges and collect funds through donations to solve these challenges and support joint causes. These donations are collected from Lebanese within Lebanon and across the globe to help foster a spirit of personal engagement.
Through HelpForLeb.com website, a passive Lebanese citizen/friend will become an active Lebanese citizen/supporter. That’s our main objective. Turning “passive citizen and supporter” into “active supporter” is a first step for positive change that we are seeking for Lebanon.
The main products are social, environmental and humanitarian Lebanese causes, being on an individual level, a community /village level, and an association/charity level. Through our secure and trusted online platform HelpForLeb.com we will provide the service of fundraising for the causes posted online. It also gives a chance to users to donate to Lebanese associations/charities of their choice.
Our main target is a Lebanese local and especially a Lebanese living abroad.
The beneﬁciaries from this online platform are behind the published causes:
– Lebanese people in need (individual level)
– Lebanese community or village in need
– Lebanese associations/charities
– Lebanese in crisis (after a catastrophic strike)
LebForHelp.com provides them with:
1- a public awareness exposure and visibility through different online networks reaching the eyes and hearts of Lebanese people locally and globally (and reaching none Lebanese two).
2- a funded financial support/donation to achieve the goal behind their causes.
