In October 2017, MERATH helped open a new Child
Friendly Space in the Beqaa Valley where 60 vulnera-
ble young children are going each day.
After a four-day training, five Syrian and Lebanese women
opened the new Child Friendly Space (CFS) in an informal
tented settlement, to support the social and emotional well-
being and development of 60 children between two and five
years old.
This CFS provides a safe space for those children, with pro-
gramming including play, education, health, and psychosocial
support. The children benefit from much-needed physical and
cognitive stimulation, and develop social skills by interacting
with others. This project also frees up time for mothers so
they can work, and includes support and training about early
childhood development for families and caregivers.
CHILD PROTECT ION :
GOING FURTHER IN EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT
2017October– December
Quarterly Highlights
I was living in a nice house, with my hus-
band, our new born son, and two daugh-
ters. One day we were told that ISIS was
coming to our neighborhood. I left the
house immediately with my children. As
we were running snipers started shoot-
ing at us. My baby boy was hit and died
in my arms. I felt very lost and depressed
when we arrived in Lebanon. It was
snowing and I had to settle in a tent
shared with other families. But in all this
the local church (MERATH’s partner)
made things easier. They provided me
with fuel, mattresses and blankets, and
food when we needed it. They also gave
dresses and toys to my girls and helped
them get back in school. Today I have
five daughters and I am responsible for
this amazing project! I feel useful here.
My personality changed and the depres-
sion went away. One day I believe I will
see my son in heaven, this is what keeps
me moving. The church gave me this
hope.
Roula* is now responsible for the
newly opened Child Friendly Space.

Quarterly Update
October—December 2017
BASIC NEEDS :HELPING OUR FRIENDS STAY WARM
It is getting cold isn't it? MERATH provid-
ed its partners with all the winter items
they need for their distributions. This win-
ter, we are hoping to help more than
3,000 vulnerable households stay warm
by providing mattresses, blankets, fuel,
heaters, and clothes. We are glad to be
able to help them keep warm.
PARTNERS’ CORNER : FEEDBACK FROM SYRIA
Our partners in war-torn Syria have never
stopped working despite incredibly
dangerous and exhausting circumstances!
Bringing them together in November to
discuss our relief and development pro-
grams and listen to their feedback and
current needs was very inspirational but
also challenging: the needs are bigger and
bigger after almost seven years of conflict!
LIVELIHOODS : CALL US IF YOU NEED A HAIRCUT!

Last October, MERATH helped launch a
new center where around 30 young and
highly motivated women are learning hair
coloring, haircutting, and hair texturing
techniques in the hope of becoming pro-
fessional hairdressers and earning income
to provide better for their families.
MERATH, through local partners, implements relief and development projects
for thousands of refugee and internally displaced families
in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq
