Many of you know that my family is helping a Syrian refugee family living in Lebanon. Last night the army went into their camp and took all their things, including some solar panels we recently helped them buy so they could charge their phones and have some light at night.
They are not allowed to work, so their situation is extremely difficult (besides the general situation in Lebanon).
I'm hoping you can help us raise some money to send them (our goal is $2500) and they can rebuild (a little bit) their lives.

and, of course, we will send them the money in one transfer.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
If you could also boost this message, I will appreciate it.
