Salam’s Storm Emergency Response
7th- 25th January 2019
During the early month of January, the Bekaa Valley was severely hit by two consecutive storms – Norma and Miriam. This
led to flooding in Bar Elias, Saadnayel, Anjar and Rawda areas, among others. The Syrian refugee tent settlements were
particularly affected. Due to poor infrastructure and the flooding of the Litani River, many tents and informal structures were
severely damaged by water and wind. This caused many issues, such as inhospitable living conditions, damage to personal
items and an unhealthy build-up of sewage. Salam LADC responded by opening our community center as an emergency
shelter, doing several relief aid distributions and coordinating with local and international NGOs.

During the first storm, Salam did a small children’s clothing distribution at settlements (083 and 038) that had flooded in Bar
Elias. At the peak of the second storm, we did a blanket and fuel distribution at four affected settlements (077, 071, 021, 63)
in Saadnayel, near to Salam’s Community Center. Each tent received 54 liters of heating fuel and 4 blankets. After the storm,
we distributed fuel and food rations to some of the other camps near the center in Saadnayel (076 and 083), which did not
receive any assistance during this winter, as help to overcome the harsh conditions. Each tent received 54 liters of fuel and 1
food basket. We also distributed heating fuel to 28 families living in poor conditions in Bar Elias. Please find a detailed
breakdown of the number of beneficiaries and what they received in the graphs below.

Emergency Shelter
In collaboration with Women Now, Salam’s Community Center was opened as an emergency shelter during the adverse
weather conditions and stopped its regular activities. We hosted 40 beneficiaries for five days after their tents flooded in
their settlement in Bar Elias (083 an 038). The group comprised of women and children, 29 children between 2 to 13 years
old and 3 newborn babies. Salam, in collaboration with other local associations, provided the families with mattresses,
blankets, warm clothes, heating fuel, water, food and medical care. And, during this time, several activities were
conducted by Salam’s team, such as:

4 hours hours-worth of health awareness sessions
Psychosocial support for mothers
Play with Purpose for children
Music sessions with musical entertainment

The following NGOs worked in collaboration to support the beneficiaries:
• Women Now for Development – referral cases and mattresses
• SAWA – breakfasts and dinner for 5 days
• Private donor – lunch for 5 days
• EMA – medical assessments

NGO Coordination
At the peak of the two storms, Salam worked in close coordination and collaboration with other local NGOs, such as
SAWA, Women Now for Development, Basamat for Development and Basmeh w Zeitooneh to provide support:
• Staff support: up to 10 volunteers and staff sent per day
• Logistical support with cars
• Helping in preparing, packing and distributing meals
• Blankets for emergency shelters
