Hungry stomachs, frigid hearts, and empty pockets…
These images show the realities of Lebanese society during the devastating economic crisis that hit Lebanon, as well as the snowstorm that slammed the country and caused a significant decrease in temperature.
Humanitarian activities to feed the poor and call society’s attention: the Lebanese have never begged for money… in Tripoli.
The proprietor of this business decided to give away free food to anyone in need.
A tiny piece of paper on the restaurant’s door is enough to lend a helping hand and touch people’s hearts.
Not only does the restaurant’s proprietor provide complimentary food. There are other eateries in Tripoli, as well as Saida and other Lebanese provinces, that participate in the same humanitarian project, such as restaurants or vegetable stores.
These scenes are both sad and touching, and they demonstrate that no matter how hard life gets, there is always a space for humanity in people’s hearts!
