Telethon
Stouh Beirut

The annual Christmas Telethon has been active since 2013, initially hosted by Dalia on her then-talk show Stouh Beirut”.

It has become a yearly televised fundraising event that lasts for hours, raising financial support to individuals or families, from across Lebanon, that have poor access to appropriate medical care and/or life-threatening social and financial conditions.

This year, despite all the difficult conditions, we insist to fulfill our humanitarian mission in organizing the annual humanitarian event “TELETHON STOUH BEIRUT”. And since the pain is bigger this year and while hunger and poverty hurt only those who are experiencing them, our goals will be:

1 – Distributing starting one million Lebanese Liras to more than one thousand Lebanese families who are in need across Lebanon. Moreover, we will choose cases from these families who have different necessities, and we will try to raise more donations depending on their needs so they can have a notable decent change in their lives.

2 -Raising money to cover the expenses of the treatments to different critical illness cases (children, elders, or breadwinners…) giving them back the hope in life they deserve the most.

Without your support, we cannot go on and we cannot give them back the smile and they can never celebrate the holidays!

Therefore, for the Eighth consecutive year, we will be waiting for you on the 21st of December to face the pain with a smile and to color up the darkness, so that we can all celebrate the holidays!

We need your help!
