Fundraising for the Red Cross

The United Nations has warned of a “humanitarian crisis” in Lebanon.  In response we are organising a fundraising campaign in Tayside Scotland to support the work of the Red Cross.

The situation is dire with

  • 500,000 refugees in Lebanon with no food or shelter
  • 150,000 Lebanese refugees in Syria
  • People are continually under military attack with approximately 300 dead and over 1000 injured
  • The Lebanese Government calling for emergency supplies of “food, milk, nappies, cooking utensils, medicines, tents, blankets, bulldozers, generators and fire-fighting equipment.”
  • The Red Cross asking for $8,000,000 for its emergency needs this month
  • The UN Humanitarian Chief asking for $100,000,000 to help the Lebanese people
