In 2019, Lebanon's once healthy economy was dismantled due to a series of political issues that unfolded right before the onset of the COVID pandemic. It is estimated that the currency in Lebanon has lost 95% of it's value. For the average person, that means that an average wage of $900 per month is now worth less than $50. The demand for goods and the cost for essentials is sky-high, but securing even the most basic of needs extremely difficult.
The disturbance in the Lebanon has caused many other countries in the region to suffer similar economic distress and many brothers and sisters are experiencing hardships.
