Campaigns

  • We teamed up with the Lebanese Rugby League and Harley Davidson HOGS during the month of April 2015 for Child Abuse Prevention Month. A series of shots were taken with the rugby players and Harley bikers looking fierce. more
  • In September 2015, Rayan and Rami Rasamny climbed the Mont Blanc and successfully reached the highest peak in the Alps. The climb was challenging but was used as a metaphor for the challenges that children victims of abuse in Lebanon must face every day. Throughout their climb, Rami and Rayan raise awareness about child abuse and himaya through their social media accounts, referring their audiences to the crowdfunding page. more
     
  • After Rami and Rayan's success with Mont Blanc, the cousins decided to attempt another summit for himaya's cause, this time: the Matterhorn. As they scaled up the mountain, they regularly posted about their whereabouts and raised awareness about child abuse in Lebanon, as well as the services himaya offers to children who have experienced abuse. more
  • We combined forces with a lot of players and covered a lot of ground for Child Abuse Prevention Month 2016. First off, we launched our "It's All In the Eyes" campaign at ABC Ashrafieh. The purpose of the campaign was to help the public recognize when a child is a victim of abuse and to intervene by getting in touch with himaya. Children often do not speak up when they're victims of abuse, but the pain is evident in their eyes. more
     
  • In 2016, the #polishedman campaign swept the web-nation with its innovative approach and hard-hitting message. Men across the country painted one of their fingernails and uploaded a picture on social media while raising awareness about child abuse in Lebanon.

  • Christmas is a perfect time to spread joy and happiness in the lives of children who weren't as lucky as we were growing up. The Spread the Love campaign was a simple message of hope and support for children who had no home to go to for the holidays, not for financial reasons, but because their own home was a threat on their lives. Spread the Love campaign engaged the Lebanese community in the public and private sectors. more
     
  • Today, 1 out of 7 children in Lebanon is a victim of sexual abuse, and what's even more outrageous, in our conservative culture, is that no one dares to talk about it.

  • Child abuse is a critical issue that has long been neglected in Lebanon. A study conducted in 2008, showed that 1 out of 6 children in Lebanon is a victim of a form of sexual violence. This refers to only 1 out of 4 types of abuse a child can be exposed to: physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. In light of these alarming results, himaya was founded in 2008 with the notification number 748/2009.
