About Basmeh and Zeitooneh

The Basmeh & Zeitooneh is a voluntarily and non-profit-oriented initiative founded by Syrians based in Lebanon, with their Lebanese friends. The members of the group represent the richness and variety of the Syrian society as they belong to the different intellectual and cultural as well as religious and ethnic affiliations. Within the bounds of their possibilities, the volunteers assist Syrian refugees who are in dire need of help.

The initiative started in September 2012 with regular field visits of some regions which have been frequented by Syrian refugees who are the neediest. The main goal was to assess the needs and to fill in the gaps of humanitarian assistance. After the initial assessment phase, efforts have been concentrated in areas where the needs appeared to be most urgent. The volunteers succeeded in building up trustworthy relations with the refugees through their regular visits and their individual initiatives, which later on became streamlined and led to the establishment of an organization.
