” I AM NOT A TOURIST “
“I AM NOT A TOURIST” is an initiative to collect winter clothing for Syrian refugees of all ages in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon.
There’s so much YOU can do. Winter is here & while our jackets are stuffed in the closet and we are sat under our sheets, drinking our tea…
– Mohamad, age 20 was asked what he wanted for his birthday this year. His answer was: A blanket for my sister.
-Zahra’s bones can’t withstand the temperature any longer. With such basic shelter, she might not make it.
-Ali, a 13 year old kid whose only happiness comes from playing football, needs shoes. Yes, he has no shoes.
– Zeinab, age 20 is now the guardian angel of her 4 brothers and 3 nieces who lost their parents. She can’t afford a cold.
Please, I urge you to take part in this initiative and help me, help them. Remember that any of these refugees could have been me or you. It’s just a matter of luck and circumstance.
You wouldn’t let yourself shiver at night so why should they?
THIS SATURDAY at BIEL (Down town area – “Beirut By Bike” arena) from 11am to 6pm, we will be there waiting for you to drop your bag of extra clothes that might seem small to you, but is so so big to a child, a mother, a young ambitious adult, who will warm up this winter through the difficult living conditions.
Even if you have just one item to give away, It’s enough. Anything is enough, just come contribute.
