Who we are?

COG is an online community that connects young professionals and helps them find meaning in life through different forms of giving.

Core Purpose

Our core purpose is to help orphans and ensure that our grants have a real impact on them. Our work carries the human message: "By the people for the people”. In the spirit of transparency, we will involve our donor in the process so that he/she have more awareness about the whole process.

Values

  • God-centered
  • People-focused
  • Community-based
  • Fully Transparent
  • Exchange of Value
  • Inspire Others by sharing stories of giving without showing off

On My Last Visit to Lebanon

On my last visit to Lebanon, I documented some of the charity and relief work done by anonymous volunteers behind the scenes. The intention was to film the volunteers who lead the community support with my smartphone camera and to transmit these videos as they are without any modification or effects.

 

But I was destined to meet a great photography team that share the love of adventure and enthusiasm and the love of doing good. Then we were blessed by Allah as we were looking at the great stories. Some are sad and shocking, and some are full of hope and incentive to challenges and surviving. I never expected to see people living in such terrible conditions. For example, I visited a woman who lives with her son in a small room within the area of a cemetery in Beirut. In other words, she is literally living in the cemetery. I visited a family that had lost six of its children at hospital doors. I stopped by the injured people of different nationalities who were victims of the explosion in Beirut. Also, I met a young man who was only a few inches away from the death. Listening to these stories made me cry. But I promised Allah and I promised those people to bring their stories to the world. And I don’t aim at collecting donations or trading each one of these stories for a small amount of money as the media does. Instead, I want to bring together and recruit a community that is united for doing good.

 

We decided to name this series (A community of Givers).

 

We aspire to spread good thinking and good work, and we intend to spread this goodwill and thinking good among all people.

في زيارتي الاخيرة إلى لبنان

في زيارتي الاخيرة إلى لبنان، قمت بتوثيق بعض أوجه العمل الخيري والإغاثي التي قام به الجنود المجهولون من وراء الكواليس. كانت النية أن أصور بعض المتطوعين بكاميرا الهاتف النقال، وأنقل الصورة كما هي من دون أي تعديل أو مؤثرات


لكن قدر لي أن ألتقي بفريق رائع من العاملين في التصوير والذين يجمعهم حب المغامرة والحماسة وحب الخير، ثم أكرمنا الله بالاطلاع على قصص في غاية الروعة بعضها محزن وصادم إلى درجة الكآبة وبعضها مليء بالأمل ودافع بشكل كبير للتحدي والصمود. لم أتوقع يوماً أن أرى أناساً يعيشون بتلك الأوضاع المزرية التي شاهدتها ووثقتها. زرت امرأة تعيش هي وابنها في غرفة ضيقة جدا ضمن حدود مقبرة في بيروت. يعني بالعربي تعيش داخل المقبرة. وزرت عائلة خسرت ستاً من أولادها على أبواب المستشفيات. وزرت بعض المصابين من انفجار بيروت، من جنسيات مختلفة وقابلت شاباً كان بينه وبين الموت بضع سنتيمترات فقط. بكيت كثيرا وتأثرت كثيرا من تلك القصص. لكن عاهدت الله وعاهدت أولئك الناس أن أنقل قصصهم للعالم. لا لكي أجمع التبرعات ولم أفكر بمقايضة كل قصة بثمن بخس دراهم معدودة كما تفعل وسائل الاعلام. بل لكي أجمع وأجند مجتمعاً معطاء مجتمعا متوحداً حول عمل الخير


قررنا أن نسمي السلسلة


“A Community of Givers”


 “نحو مجتمع معطاء”


نيتنا أن ينتشر فكر الخير وعمل الخير، وننوي أن ننشر فكر الخير وعمل الخير ونية الخير في الناس كلها
