Josephine lives by herself nearby, in a run-down ground-floor flat in Achrafieh which is in the worst possible condition: no water, no electricity, no heat, no window-panes, and the unpleasant smell of the filthy apartment greets your senses before you even step inside....

House Renovation project - Tabet Family, Karantina
30. May 2014

(News & Events)
It's a family of five: a father, a mother, two teenage girls, and a boy.
The father works as a fisherman, the mother suffers from diabetes and obesity. The children go to public schools.


The family's rundown house is located on the sea side of Karantina's maritime road. It is built with low-price materials, and is threatening to collapse at any time.


The house is composed of the following:
- A tiny living room under street level, which allows for dust and garbage to be thrown at the windows.
- A deprived kitchen with a sink and counter that are so old they could crumble at any point.
- A cabinet toilet without a door, and without even shower, a sink or a water heater.
- A bedroom for 5, with beds that are all broken and very high humidity that causes health problems.


The rooftop is made of broken "eternit" that infiltrates water and mud during the winter season.

The multi-level floor is made from cement, and puddles of water are formed all around the house when it rains.
The wall painting is falling apart, all windows have no glasses, and the main door is cracked.
Electric cables are pending everywhere in the house, and spark off whenever rain comes in.


Moreover, the house is filled with insects and rats.

The insalubrities of the place present a serious health and security danger for the whole family.

Because of the living conditions, the children are often getting ill, missing school and feeling too tired to play. They lack space to study and don't have the luxury of any privacy.


This house is next to the battery factories of Karantina, only a few meters away from the sea.
Providing better living conditions for this family can transform their life.
