Providing warmth to host communities in Lebanon

Enaam Hassan, a mother of twenty, lives in the Bekaa region of Lebanon, where cooler months are characterized by a steep drop in temperatures, with heavy snow falls further exacerbating difficult living conditions.

Diesel fuel is expensive, and she struggled to keep her house warm. “I used to buy diesel fuel for 3,000-5,000 Lebanese Pounds (US$ 2-3.5) which was barely enough for me.”
