When assessments reveal a high general need for aid assistance, our aid coordinator alongside a team of volunteers mobilize to meet the needs through larger distributions. At Salam’s Bekaa headquarters food is packed, with each package made to last an average family for 2 to 4 weeks. Clothes, shoes and blankets are also packed at our warehouse, while fuel, mattresses and other household items are procured locally, direct for distribution. On average, we make one to two large distributions per week depending on need with exact items varying according to seasonal needs. All of our distributions, as well as funding for all Salam’s other projects are only possible because of our donors, mainly private donors from around the world.
