Help US troops maintain stability in one of Lebanon’s most challenging regions

Dear supporters,

Despite having faced many different challenges in recent years, including a deluge of refugees coming in from Syria as a result of the civil war and an ISIS invasion in the nation’s northeast, Lebanon is an anchor of stability in the Middle East and an important US partner.

While ISIS has been repelled from the town of Arsal, which once stood as ground zero for the terrorist organization, there is a severe lack of resources needed to accommodate the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees that remain in the area.

This is especially true regarding healthcare services, which have been pushed to the brink and are in vital need of replenishment.

Right now, US advisors are on the ground working with Lebanese Army units to promote stability and help alleviate the humanitarian situation; however, they can’t do it alone. With your help, we can provide urgently needed medical supplies for two clinics in Arsal providing free healthcare to the area’s residents.

A $30 donation provides enough medication to treat up to 10 people, while $270 can provide medical support to an entire community.

Your gift will demonstrate the goodwill of the American people and make our troops more successful in their mission. Even a small donation can mean a big difference for someone in need.

As always, thank you for your support,
