Dar Al Amal is a Lebanese NGO, established in 1969. Its vision is to safeguard the rights of children at risk and women in situation of exploitation, prostitution, violence or in conflict with the law.
In Lebanon a large number of vulnerable children, mostly girls, suffer from all forms of violence and exploitation. Similarly, marginalized women such as prostitutes and exprisoners are rejected from their family and community. These beneficiaries are both in need of a safe environment far from the source of danger. With the new shelter located in Choueifat, Dar Al Amal wants to satiate this need as the few existing shelters are not enough to welcome the mentioned categories and never accept them in emergency.
This story is an example for the urgent need of a shelter:
N. is a 16 years old girl who had a bad relationship with her family. That’s why she ran away from home. Unfortunately one day, N. met a man who forced her into prostitution. After three months N. finally escaped from him and returned home. However the family could not accept her after she had brought shame upon the family. Dar Al Amal tried to find a shelter to protect the girl; meanwhile it provided psychological help and family follow-up. But it was not possible to find a safe place for N., because the available shelters in Lebanon could not receive her.
The Choueifat center Renovation started in 2013, today we are a few steps away from a fully operational safe house. We need your support to buy the Kitchen equipment for and start welcoming Lebanese ladies to ensure them a decent living.
