Min Beib La Beib (MBLB) was officially launched on December 19th, 2019 when the economic situation in Lebanon deteriorated and people were faced with an unexpected inflation. MBLB is run by a group of dedicated women who could not sit still and witness this developing crisis and saw the urge to act and help people on the ground.
The purpose of this nonprofit is first and foremost to deliver necessary items to underprivileged families, after visiting them and evaluating their needs. At its inception, MBLB was running on a small budget. It collected used furniture and other necessary items delivering them to needy families from door to door without any expense on both ends.
After the August 4th explosion, MBLB began accepting donations to purchase brand new furniture and appliances. This is because the demand for furniture and home appliances has grown dramatically and the supply of donors in kind within the country was no longer sufficient to meet these needs.
Towards the end of 2021 and continuing into 2022, MBLB started and will continue to work closely with local craftsmen to develop an MBLB furniture line. Basic items such as closets, dining tables, chairs and sofas that can be easily customized depending on each family’s needs will carefully be designed at a relatively low cost. The idea is not to wait for in kind donations only but to have items ready and available at all times to fill the intensified demand for furniture and provide families with a decent home.
Mission And Vision
The mission of Min Beib La Beib is to create safe and secure homes for all in Lebanon, disregarding race, gender and religion. We believe that adequate housing is a basic human right for all and not a privilege to some. Within the scope of our mission, our vision is to strive not only to empower vulnerable people by refurbishing their homes, but also to provide jobs and increase the resilience of individuals and small enterprises working in various sectors in our country. Those include the movers working on our trucks, as well as the carpenters, artisans and craftsmen producing our furniture. Our goal is to create solidarity and engage the community as a whole in order to promote the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable men and women.
