There are hundreds of Syrian and Palestinian families who have built makeshift homes in a graveyard in Lebanon. They use scraps or wood, metal and cheap cement to make them. They usually have two families in one ‘house’ which consists of two rooms, one family per room. The rooms’ walls are often incomplete, covered with old material between them. There are no doors on the rooms or bathroom so no one is afforded privacy or modesty.
Our project aims to provide these families with dignity. We put doors up, extend walls, add ceilings, tile kitchens so they are not built on just dirt, and allow family members to live under one roof but with boundaries and dignity.
£250 will provide the tools to fix damaged homes
