Help and Support
Makhzoumi Foundation started its work in relief and humanitarian aid with displaced people during the Israeli invasion of July 2006. Makhzoumi Foundation Relief and Humanitarian Services Unit was initiated in 2011 as an emergency response to the Iraqi and Syrian crisis in Lebanon. As a result of an agreement with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the unit became UNHCR’s implementing partner to respond to the needs of vulnerable people in Lebanon. The unit works with several United Nations Agencies, International NGOs and local partners to provide services to beneficiaries of all nationalities in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, including the Palestinian camps in Beirut. The unit’s overall objective is to ensure assistance and humanitarian protection to displaced people and vulnerable communities in Lebanon.
