Our Story

▪ The House of Christmas was set up by a group of Lebanese friends living locally and abroad and working in various sectors including medical, law, finance, business, and real estate.
▪ HOC held its first fundraising event in December 2017 at the House which turned, for a day, into a proper Christmas market fair with a selective number of exhibitors and NGOs selling exclusive products and items to support various social causes. The fair also included kids activities, a food court, and a proper spirit of charity, solidarity and compassion to help alleviate the pain, inequality and poverty in Lebanon
▪ Since then, the reach of HOC extended beyond Christmas to support families throughout the year and across various regions to help them achieve sustainability in their lives. HOC focused on providing the families with: food and basic needs, medical services, housing, education, livelihood support and legal protection
▪ Following the tragic events of August 2020, HOC expanded its humanitarian efforts to support livelihoods and small businesses in a targeted and strategic way and to restore heritage buildings housing vulnerable families to help preserve the social fabric and revive the economic activity of the neighborhoods in Beirut.
▪ Today, HOC comprises of three main pillars: family empowerment, livelihood and business support, heritage and culture preservation.
▪ Our strong belief in humanity, justice and equal opportunity coupled with our common love for Lebanon, our people and our history drive and define our selfless efforts.
