AMERICAN wOMEN'S cLUB of lEBANON


The AWC Caring Committee has been working to contribute to the relief effort after the Beirut port blast on August 4,2020.   Below are two modest, but heartfelt initiatives that we have completed to help those in need. Check back often - we plan to do more!!

 THE STOVETOP CONTRIBUTION 

The AWC board agreed in late August to purchase of 10 - 3 top stovetops requested by Baytna Baytak (My House is Your House).  On September 4, a young man from STREET, an initiative associated with Baytna Baytak, collected the 10 stovetops for distribution to families in Katantina, a poor area hit hard by the blast.   Below is just a part of the acknowledgement of our donation: 

Dearest lovely ladies of the American Women's Club,

I trust this letter finds you well. First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your constant support and creative ways of helping us and the Lebanese community.   It means a great deal to us to see this kind of support and kindness from our surrounding community.   Your donation of 8 burners to STREET and 2 burners to Baytna Baytak will be going to help displaced families rebuild their homes and lives.

Best Regards,

Melissa M. Fathallah - Active member in STREET crises management and a founder of Baytna Baytak.
