Life Line

Main aim of the charity

Beit Jdoudna aims to provide support for elderly people by giving them necessities to live in a respectful and decent environment. Their main concern is avoiding having elders sleep on the roads. They are part of Lifeline NGO that supports Refugees in offering social support (mental support - medical care - women empowerment- etc ).

How the employee got involved and why

In 2019 I heard about the NGO, and about their mission. and i learned that Those people were alone and had no one to care for them until they joined Beit Jdouna’s “ Lifeline” family, they worked hard all their lives and they do deserve a decent retirement. Listening to the elderly’ stories sharing their pain, their tears and smiles , and watching their old tired faces, I couldn’t not help. They deserve to be loved and cared for, maintain their dignity and not fear of the unknown. All they want is a decent life, a home and a warm meal. We all are going to grow old, and we all deserve to have a decent life.

What work does the employee do for charity

I’ve been supporting this NGO financially monthly for a few years now. Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, my visits became limited to avoid exposing the elderly to health risks. I try to visit them as frequently as possible and I’m joined most of the time by my family and nephews, after I communicate with Yara The Founder of the NGO and we take the precaution needed to make sure the elderly are kept healthy and safe. Whenever they need medicines, food, or clothes, Yara share the details with a group and we usually communicate with friends and family , and encourage them to participate as well and help as much possible.
