Beirut, Lebanon: Despite the stormy weather in Lebanon, JACKIT hand delivered jackets to approximately 300 Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian orphans from refugee camps at a special event for children held in Beirut.
JACKIT works together with the Beyond Association, which currently has approximately 21,000 children registered in their child protection centres across Lebanon. Because of the situation in the region, the number of children seeking safety increases every day. It costs as little as $16 USD to keep a child warm.
Commenting on JACKIT’s initiatives, Mrs. Gina Shim, JACKIT’s co-founder said: “JACKIT is a charity whose sole purpose is to raise money to buy jackets, hats and rain boots for children in refugee camps. JACKIT is entirely run by volunteers and 100% of money raised goes to helping the lives of the children. Winter clothing is delivered directly by hand by volunteers to the children in the camps. “
It’s worth mentioning that JACKIT’s next Activity Day will take place on the 8th January 2017, where volunteers will hand deliver more winter clothes to more children, to brighten their day with creative fun activities and games.
