The location and family name of a child will be withheld until the donor has been identified. Lebanese Relief Fund will not publish or make public the address, telephone number or e-mail contact of any of the children or their families.
Sponsorship is based on the agreement that donors will not attempt to contact the orphan or their family by any means without the specific permission of Lebanese Relief Fund.
The donor and orphan are free to exchange correspondence via Lebanese Relief Fund’s Fundraising and Field offices, however all postal material must conform to LRF policy.
The donor may visit the orphan, at their own expense, provided written permission is obtained in advance. Lebanese Relief Fund may carry out police background checks before permitting such visits. The visit will be supervised at all times by the Orphans Welfare Officer within that country.
Unfortunately, Lebanese Relief Fund cannot allow unannounced visits to the sponsored orphan. For obvious safety reasons, sponsored children cannot be brought to the donor’s country for visits.
Photographs and other data posted on the website are for the purpose of supplying potential sponsors with relevant information about the orphan’s welfare programme. The information and photographs may not be downloaded, copied or replicated without the express permission of LRF.
Lebanese Relief Fund aims to secure sponsorship for orphans to provide them with a better future to enable them to be able to support themselves and their communities.
Lebanese Relief Fund is fully committed to protecting the security, privacy and dignity of its orphans and their families. The Child Rights and Protection procedures detailed in this section are in place to ensure the safety and welfare of children, and to offer them protection from exploitation or abuse.
At 7, Hasan is hoping to a better life and future. He was dreaming to visit and explore the different places that his father kept telling him about every night.
But, his dreams has vanished because his father is no longer there, in 2006 an Israeli plane bombarded their village "Marwaheen" and killed his father while was on the run to provide his family with a piece of bread.
Now Hasan has no support except from handouts, in order for him to have a better education and build a good future, he needs somebody to support him by offering a sponsorship.
Lebanese Relief Fund has been working in Lebanon on different projects, especially orphan sponsorship and micro credit projects.Lebanese Relief Fund (LRF) believes that every child and especially the orphans have the right to be clothed, nourished, live a healthy life and have access to a good education.
When a family loses the first line of support the father or in worst cases both parents, not only do they have to cope with the tragedy of losing someone very dear, but also the loss of a regular source of income, which provided them the basic requirements in life.
Today there are millions of orphans around the world; they are amongst the most vulnerable in society as they do not have the same opportunities as other children. They are often forced into child labour in order to survive and miss out on a normal childhood. Needy orphans are usually deprived of food, clothing, sufficient healthcare and a good education. Perhaps the greatest tragedy of all is their lack of education.
Whenever there is conflict or war, or food shortage, the poor are always affected most. There are over 1 million refugees around the country of Lebanon who have been displaced from their homes and their livelihoods.
