Santa Teresa Foundation
The Santa Teresa Foundation is a non-profit organization, founded in Lebanon 8 years ago. Since then, the members of the foundation have had the mission of helping families in need.
Thanks to donations, the Santa Teresa foundation meets the primary needs of around 250 families every month! Given the difficult situation and the economic crisis in Lebanon, special attention is paid to the donation of food boxes. The team works hard to offer boxes containing, among other things, basic foods (rice, flour, peas, pasta, cold meats, etc.) and household products (disinfectant, tissues, toilet paper, etc.). The cost of a box provided to a family is approximately 120,000 LBP, which is equivalent to approximately $ 100 CAD. Thanks to your donations, the foundation insures a box every 1-2 months per family.
The Santa Teresa Foundation is an example of community unity, generosity and dedication. For more information, follow the foundation on Facebook!
