Lebanon has been struck severely in the past year, with anti-government protests, COVID-19, and most importantly, an economic crisis. The Lebanese Pound has been devalued by over 70%, with a shortage of dollars in the country. Lebanese people have found themselves unable to pay their domestic workers due to this shortage, and have resorted to firing their helpers, who have been sleeping in front of their embassies, with no roof over their head and no shelter. Moreover, due to the pandemic and the scarcity of the repatriation flights operating from the Beirut airport, these workers cannot find their way home – especially due to the fact that their employers must pay for the flights. Thus, Bliss 3000 furnished apartments has taken the initiative to start a fundraiser in order to help – for every $60 room booked, another will be matched; both including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
