Our mission, duty, and purpose is to alleviate poverty in Lebanon- Address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to Lebanon’s most impoverished people at local levels through collaborations with local US, International, and vetted Lebanese NGOs thereby giving these affected communities the opportunity to become self-reliant. We believe the diaspora can have a huge impact to improve the future of Lebanon and the Lebanese people.

Almost 80 per cent of Lebanon’s population lives in poverty, according to the UN. The Lebanese currency has lost more than 90 per cent of its value since October 2019, leaving essentials unaffordable to many. The war in Ukraine has further exorbitated a rise in prices of basic goods, particularly those made with wheat or oil. This Ramadan, let’s remember the orphans, the homeless, the poor, the needy, the sick and the ailing. Let’s share with them the bounties that God has bestowed on us.

Sponsor an Orphan

Orphanages are receiving fewer donations, putting thousands of children at risk. Resident children are becoming increasingly aware of the dire economic situation and are worried about whether or not they will continue to have food, an education or even a place to live as conditions in the country worsen. Ajialouna’s Social Department has been sponsoring orphans since 1995. The organization plays the role of the direct mediator between the sponsor and the beneficiary. Sponsorship currently runs for $125 USD per month or $1500 USD per year. This amount covers all health, educational and social expenses.

Sponsor Other Programs

Ajialouna relies on the generous Zakat contributions donated in the month of Ramadan to sponsor its many other Zakat eligible programs such as; 

– Covering HealthCare Costs for elders; In-patient Pediatric Chemotherapy sessions and other cancer treatments & Emergency Department visits. 

Sponsor an Elder ($1500 per year)
