The British Lebanese Association is deeply concerned about what is happening in Lebanon. In 35 years, we have not seen a crisis as grave as the one that the country is now facing. The dire economic situation has created unprecedented levels of poverty and suffering. The BLA has limited resources but we are determined to do all we can to help. We have therefore made donations of $10,000 each to seven charities - Arcenciel, Beit el Baraka, Embrace, SOS Villages D'Enfants, Lebanese Food Bank, Oum el Nour and Teach a Child - that are non-sectarian and cover the different communities.
We know that there are many more worthy charities that we would like to be able to support. We welcome any donations from our friends and members via our website, and please feel free to suggest charities to which the BLA might contribute. We are extremely grateful for your continued generosity and support. None of this would be possible without you.<
The British Lebanese Association was established in 1984 to encourage friendship and understanding between the people of Great Britain and Lebanon and to advance and encourage cultural development between the two countries.
Today the British Lebanese Association is the most prominent organisation of its type. Our twin aims are to offer our members the opportunity to meet at and enjoy our programme of events and to demonstrate up to the very highest level the determination of our two nations to maintain and to develop vital and important links.
