Please Help Us Provide Emergency Support to Refugee Families in Arsal During this Unusually Cold Winter:
In the past few days the temperature in Arsal, located at the Syrian-Lebanese border, has dropped to below zero, with heavy snowfall covering the shelters which currently host over 250,000 refugees.
With your help, we can provide these families with sufficient materials so they can keep warm during the remaining winter weeks. Each family is in dire need of a protective cover to insulate their shelter from the cold, blankets, and several litres of Mazout (the Lebanese fuel required to heat their shelter).
SB OverSeas is a non-profit organisation based in Belgium dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to refugees and victims of conflict.
Our operations are divided into the following three activities: education, emergency aid and empowerment.
SB OverSeas works with refugees in two geographical focus areas: Lebanon and Belgium. In Lebanon, we distribute emergency aid and run educational and empowerment programs in our three centres based in Arsal, Beirut and Saida.
In Belgium, we work to support unaccompanied minors and adult women in four reception and accommodation centres in order to foster inclusion.
