As the cold descended on Lebanon, 350 volunteers – including Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri and U.S. Ambassador Elizabeth Richard – joined the Dafa Campaign in Beirut Sunday for a donation drive for Lebanon's most impoverished.Now in its second year, the Dafa Campaign collects and distributes donations made for those across the country identified by the Social Affairs Ministry or humanitarian organizations as most vulnerable and in need – regardless of nationality or religion.Yacoubian said they received far more than expected this year, and estimated the donations will help upward of 30,000 families. Last year's drive helped just over 14,000 families.Originally from Raqqa, her family fled the Syrian civil war five years ago and now lives in the south Beirut suburb of Burj al-Barajneh.
