Ways to help that don’t require financial donations:

  • Fill out this form to receive a list of ways to help (courtesy of Tamara Rasamny). 

  • Jobs For Lebanon: If you or your company are hiring, please consider hiring a Lebanese person. There are many many qualified and skilled workers in Lebanon, but unfortunately the economy cannot meet their needs. Many Lebanese, who are able, are forced to leave the country in search of better opportunities. If you’re posting a job, post to jobsforlebanon.com

  • Call the Lebanese embassy and demand that they support the Lebanese people and their calls for government resignation (all of them means all of them): (202) 939-6300 - info@lebanonembassyus.org

  • Demand your respective governments hold the Lebanese government accountable and not donate any funds to the government (only to verified local NGOs or transparent international humanitarian groups).
