Supporting ULYP

Running for ULYP

The Blom Bank Beirut Marathon will be held on the 11th of November this year and ULYP will be in partnership with them again! Every runner has the option to run in partnership with an organisation and a percentage of the proceeds is donated to the charitable work done by that organisation. This year, if you run for ULYP, part of your registration fee will go to the wonderful work we do with children and youth in Lebanon. Last year’s donations helped to build our new pre-school, which has been teaching young children all year!

If you are planning to run in the marathon this year, please run for us. When registering on the marathon website, all you have to do is click on ‘ULYP’, when asked what organisation you’d like to support (under the ‘Run for a Cause’ tab). These donations make a huge difference to the work we do here so please, get your running shoes on and run for ULYP.

Give a Coat, Warm a Heart

Winter is coming, and without the right clothing, many families will struggle to stay warm. We are therefore delighted to announce that our Caring Coats Campaign will be running for the fifth time. Between October 15th and November 15th, ULYP will be placing donation boxes all over Beirut, as well as at our office. Please donate any coats, scarves, blankets and other warm pieces of clothing if you can. Last year, over 3500 hearts were warmed by your kind donations. This year we are hoping for even more!

Thank you, your contributions can make a huge difference!

GIVE WARMTH

It’s never too late. Thousands of Syrian refugees are currently suffering under huge piles of snow, unable to leave their tents to access food, clothes or winter supplies. After the success of our Caring Coats Campaign in November-December, when over 45 large boxes of coats, blankets, jumpers, hats and more were donated, ULYP is teaming up with other organisations to spread the warmth. Together with two local NGOs based in the Bekaa (SAWA for Development and Aid, and URDA), we are reaching out to support those in need.

ULYP is receiving donations at our office in Hamra this week, from Monday the 12th until Wednesday the 14th 11AM till 2PM. A delivery will be sent to the Beqaa at the end of each day in order to respond as quickly as possible.

ULYP’s address is:
Beirut Building Company Bldg
Makdessi Street – Hamra Beirut
Phone: +961 1 346 422 | +961 1 745657
Fax: + 961 1 745657

In addition, for those who cannot physically make it to Hamra, we have partnered up with Uber (Everyone’s Private Driver™), and they have generously offered their services for free to pick up the donations from your homes and bring them to us!
