Aid to Lebanon during the Israeli war-2006
APN contributed to a campaign to provide aid to the Lebanese people who were displaced as a result of Israel's war on Lebanon in 2006. Working in collaboration with the Lebanese Community Society in Jordan, necessary relief aid was collected including the following:
APN was involved in collecting aid materials and coordinating their shipment to Lebanon in conjunction with the Lebanese Embassy through partnerships facilitating logistical matters and media contribution.
Intensive contacts were held with Lebanese parties to determine the most urgent needs. Lebanese based NGOs including the Norwegian Relief Society, Muatinoon Society, Green Line, the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA), World Council of Churches and the Red Cross combined their efforts to carry the materials to the Lebanese ministries of health and environment in cooperation with the Higher Relief Committee in the country. APN also managed to deliver aid directly to those in need to avoid bureaucratic procedures.
Eight relief shipments of food, medical stuffs and household items were loaded from Aramex centers, the Lebanese Embassy and the Young Women's Christian Association and shipped to Lebanon.
A group of Jordanian citizens also took part in the relief operation collecting relief stuffs in their homes and carrying them to the aid locations.
