WHY WE STARTED
Baytna Baytak started as a civil initiative launched by a dynamic and forward thinking community of activists to help secure housing for healthcare professionals working at the forefront of the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic no matter their religion, sect, gender or nation of origin.
Our goal is to better serve the community, creating a safe haven, a place where people, no matter their background or circumstances, co-exist together harmoniously, sheltered under solid roofs.
We bring honesty, trust and genuine human care when handling people’s homes as if they were our own.
At Baytna Baytak, we create homes.
Beirut has been seriously devastated by the recent Blast.
Over 200 people have died , thousands more are injured, and countless more have been displaced. Many homes, businesses, and heritage sites have been destroyed throughout the affected areas.
Amidst the darkness and power shortage in Lebanon, we could not stay idle and had to act quickly! Thus a Solar Power panel initiative was launched by Meghterbin Mejtemiin in partnership with Baytna Baytak to help bring power to the country. In an effort to sustainably power Lebanon, Meghterbin Mejtemiin and Baytna Baytak lanched the first phase of the Solar Panels Initiative by installing residential solar power systems up to 5 Amperes per house. Priority of houses will initially be given to those with medical complications in need of medical supplies; According to local statistics, at least 10,000 people in Lebanon rely on oxygen machines! The residential solar power systems installed will mainly support the oxygen machines, fridge/freezer, television, lamps and other house electronics. This solution is also a great way to reduce carbon footprint, thus improving the air quality and reducing cancerous diseases, since it is a clean, green source of energy.$13,307.00 donatedDonate
A large tank of fuel exploded in Akkar-Lebanon on August 15, 2021, killing at least 35 people and injuring more than 80. The disaster occurred in the midst of a severe fuel shortage crisis which has caused long power cuts all across Lebanon, threatening most sectors including healthcare. In an effort to provide relief for this disaster, Baytna Baytak, Lebanon Needs and Basecamp launched this fundraiser in order to provide livelihood support to the already struggling families of Akkar, as well as medical equipment and supplies to help save the lives of those affected by the calamity.$27,159.00 donatedDonate
