ABOUT US
OUR STORY
Driven by a sense of revolt against injustice, Berrad El Hayʼs Founder Nayla Frem Sayegh started loading her car with snacks and beverages and shared them with the homeless. But this method was not sustainable, and she knew that everyone deserves a reliable access to food. Inspired by the concept of community fridges, already popular in Europe and the Americas, Nayla decided to launch a similar initiative in Lebanon. This is how Berrad El Hay - Arabic for “The Neighborhoodʼs Fridge”- came to life.

Berrad El Hay is a Lebanese nonprofit, non-governmental organization registered in Lebanon under number 1188.
OUR MISSION
We aim to mobilize the different actors in our community and build sustainable neighborhood solidarity and safety nets for individuals and families living on the brink to protect them from poverty and ensure their most basic needs to live with dignity
OUR APPROACH
Berrad El Hay adopts a holistic approach to understand the psycho-social dynamics of our beneficiaries and identify issues that are at the core of their predicament. We then elaborate strategies to help them overcome their challenges and become more independent. We also consider the bigger picture as we seek to connect with donors, partners, experts, and volunteers to create nurturing communities that inspire, engage, and empower.
OUR VISION
Stronger communities can eliminate hunger in our neighborhoods
It all starts with one cooked meal .
and yes it is personal .
