Call to donors

Without the financial means majority of the projects will be crippled, and in vain. With your assistance many elderlies in need will enjoy a better life, and you will ease the aging burden on them; ‘aging’, this amazing unavoidable process that every human will go through.

To make it possible for every donor to enjoy the joy of giving, several programs were created so  to fit your budget, and to give you a clear idea what kind of value you are adding to the life of the elderly receiving the assistance, or to the program you select. 

Available donation programs

The following programs are yearly ones, and of course you can elect to support a multiple-year program where applicable, or simply donate an amount of money. 

Sponsor an elderly

Medications Assistance: as a part of the aging process, many will require a permanent prescription for chronic illnesses (blood pressure, water retention, heart support, blood sugar..).

The current situation in Lebanon made this need very acute; not only there is no more support from the government, but also the medications cannot be found in the country and frequently people have to manage their way to ship them from abroad, an option very few people can afford.



General Assistance: under this category a general support is provided. It covers assisting the elderly in their day-to-day needs from food, to gas, to a weekly grocery shopping, house cleaning, moderate medications need, house rent, electricity bill..



Food Assistance: provides a weekly delivery of food basics (meat, chicken, cooking oil, olive oil …) 



24X7 in-house assistance: this is an urgent need due to a combination of dementia and physical weakness
