A lot of people were invited to get their basic needs for free; freedom was given to those who had lost it because of their bad economic situation.   The United Arab Emirates Embassy in Lebanon did present the food and the gifts, whereas Charity Donation Foundation provided the clothes and left the prepared food boxes for distribution in 2019.
