Refugees fleeing Syria into Lebanon
Amina lived in Jaramana Palestinian Refugee Camp, near Damascus, Syria. She and seven family members fled a battle zone in Syria and endured a difficult and exhausting journey to cross the border into Lebanon, with only a few personal belongings.

Gaza Emergency Appeal
In December 2012 Gaza was subjected to 7 days of bombardment, which led to over 103 civilian casualties. The Welfare Association responded to this emergency crisis by providing food parcels (including rice, sugar, pasta, tea and jam), enriched milk, blankets, winter clothes and medical kits to 306 families living across the Gaza Strip.
