RULA Supports Doctors Without Borders

The war in Gaza has created a dire healthcare crisis, the situation has deteriorated rapidly with hospitals running out of supplies, fuel, and beds for the thousands of wounded children and patients. According to figures from the World Health Organization (WHO), as of November 23rd, 6,150 of the 14,854 Palestinian civilians killed in this conflict have been children. Nearly two thirds of Gaza War dead are women and children. There are only 3,500 hospital beds left while there are more than 10,000 critically wounded so far. The doctors who have stayed behind to help the wounded patients are dealing with a crisis of monumental proportions. The electricity outage and fuel shortage means that the hospitals are no longer operational. In the maternity wards, premature babies are being taken out of incubators and wrapped in sheets to keep them warm.

Rise Up Lebanon Action is asking that you support the plight of children and wounded patients. Please click on the donate button below and consider supporting Doctors Without Borders (MSF) mission to send critical supplies and support to the Doctors working tirelessly in Gaza hospitals.

Doctors and other medical staff who have stayed behind to help patients are also in great danger and many healthcare workers have been killed in the last 7 weeks. With declining number of healthcare workers, increasing number of injuries, and refugees fleeing the war with inadequate access to clean water, food and sanitation, the WHO is warning of a catastrophic outbreak of diarrheal illness and respiratory infections that could eventually kill more people in Gaza than the bombing.

Rise Up Lebanon Action’s mission as an NGO is to support and address the needs of vulnerable communities.  Although we are a group of volunteers dedicated to support the various communities living in Lebanon, it is critical that all humanitarian organizations support the lives of innocent civilians ravaged by war. The continued conflict is at risk of spilling into neighboring countries including Lebanon, multiplying the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in the region. Please support our fundraising effort to help Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), so that immediate medical care and supplies reach the patients in need.

Rise Up Lebanon Action (RULA)

together we rise

In recent years Lebanon has been impacted by the port explosion, the pandemic, and an economic collapse. RULA’s immediate goal is to address the overall wellbeing of the communities by vetting and supporting reputable NGOs focused on helping individuals, families and small businesses in Lebanon. Our long term goals are to create initiatives and programs with sustainable impact including projects focused on providing vulnerable communities with access to electricity, clean water, educational programs, and medical assistance.

We formed Rise Up Lebanon Action (RULA) to do our part in giving back to the community. RULA’s main mission is to alleviate the suffering and enhance the lives of Lebanon’s vulnerable communities.

O lady of the world, O Beirut Rise from under the rubble, like an almond flower in April Cast off your grief Revolution is born out of grief Rise up in honor of the forests And the rivers And the valleys Rise up in the name of humanity
"Nizar Qabani"
يا ستَّ الدنيا يا بيروتْ قومي من تحتِ الرَدمِ، كزهرةِ لوزٍ في نيسانْ قومي من حُزنكِ إنَّ الثورةَ تولدُ من رحمِ الأحزانْ قومي إكراماً للغاباتِ وللأنهارِ وللوديانِ قومي إكراماً للإنسانْ
"نزار قبّاني"
