Lend a Hand
There are several ways sympathetic individuals can lend a hand to families fleeing conflict zones through our initiative:
We are currently making weekly deliveries of food and other items to the group in Beziers. The need is great and the supply is limited. We need a growing set of donors (and collectors) to sustain this effort at a level that is meaningful for the families involved. At the moment the greatest need is for basic food and household items. Click here for a current list of needs.
Along with the weekly delivery of food stuffs, we try to provide a modest amount of cash to a volunteer to purchase perishable items and to meet emergency medical care costs and other expenses. Note that LSR is a totally voluntary effort and any overhead expenses are being absorbed by the volunteers. Every penny and centime received goes directly to providing assistance to these families.

A core group meets regularly to review the situation in the region, plan activities and chart the future course of the group. We are looking for more volunteers to help this group on an ongoing basis, so if you would like to find out more about how to get involved please click here.
