Over the past years, us, Lebanese, have faced many devastating tragedies. Events, such as the Beirut explosion and the pandemic, have put our country into a disastrous state.
These circumstances have led to a severe economic crisis, trapping 50% of the population into poverty and putting thousands of children on the verge of starvation.
Yet, through major corruption, repression, neglect, isolation, we still stand. And together, we can make a difference.
Hummus, a culinary Lebanese emblem, used to travel from Lebanon to the world…
But today, we are gathering Hummus from the world… back to Lebanon, under the initiative #HummusForLebanon; a collaboration between NoGarlicNoOnions and Al Wadi Al Akhdar that aims to help Lebanese children fill their tummies.
With each Al Wadi HummusForLebanon kit purchased, a can will be donated to a Lebanese child through SOS, Himaya, Oumniati, and Ayadina; four reliable NGOs that are active all-around Lebanon.
To raise awareness about this initiative, and make a bigger impact, people will be encouraged to join the longest virtual chain of hummus.
How to join the #HummusForLebanon chain?
1- Buy a HummusForLebanon kit online, either on Lebzone or MadeinLebanon. 2- Take a picture of your hummus plate, and mention your current location
3- DM us the picture to @alwadialakhdar
The pictures shared will get featured in the “HummusForLebanon” highlight on Al Wadi’s Instagram page.
To further encourage people to take part in this initiative, activation will be launched enticing them to participate. 4 people,around the globe, will win a box from Lebanon, containing authentic Lebanese goods such as Zaatar, Saboun Baladeh..., made from local producers and farmers, alongside a couple of Al Wadi’s products.
Additionally, people can keep track of all the donated cans through a microsite, updated each hour. On the website, one can also scroll through to read more about this initiative, check the steps to participate, and purchase the kit, if they have not yet.
Together, let us break this chain of events and create one of our own.
Let us create a chain that brings back hope to our little future leaders!
