At Mishwar we are sooooo lucky to have the support of the Nahr El Bared shabab - a team of Palestinian guys (and girls!) who volunteer to help us in our activities with the Syrian youth. Here you can see, we even have Mishwar Amal t-shirts <3 We are one big team Mishwar!

Mishwar Amal started in 2016 in response to the ongoing refugee crisis in Lebanon. Our goal is to provide support and relief for refugee communities by helping develop community led creative, educational and recreational initiatives that will help improve the wellbeing and life-chances of these communities for the challenges facing them over the months and years ahead.
