Unite Globally, Assist Locally

Lebanese Empowered Against Poverty (LEAP) is a non-political, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides aid to the needy in Lebanon. 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. It is by bringing together the diaspora and channeling its potential through projects on the ground in Lebanon that we can build a resilient country that can serve all its people.

Lebanon is going through challenging times; a combination of socio-economic meltdown, political paralysis, a massive currency devaluation, an uncontrolled COVID pandemic…     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.

Lebanon Is Counting On You

Most Lebanese are experiencing severe shortages of basic services such as water, electricity. They struggle accessing basic food necessities and medication. They also lack access to healthcare and child education. 
In a matter of one year, the middle class has vanished and the once financially comfortable citizens can no longer support well-established organizations like Ajialouna. 

They might be thousands of miles away but help is literally at your fingertips!  THANK YOU in advance for your kind generosity!!
