Slechte huizenmarkt Nederland
Huren zijn nog nooit zo hoog geweest. Een huis kopen is voor velen een droom die waarschijnlijk pas heel laat werkelijkheid zal worden of misschien wel helemaal niet. Sociale huur duurt jaren en expats met hoge lonen en bijzondere voordelen, drijven de huren en koopsommen van woningen op.
Power cuts
I live in Mar Mikhail and we as others are experiencing frequent power cuts. What makes us different from the rest is the fact that we had electricity 24/7 and no one thought that we will one day reach a point where we will be forced to get "Ishtirak". Currently we only have 2 suppliers in the neighborhood and both suppliers don't have spots so each household is getting 5 amperes if lucky. 5 ampers does not power anything!  
Crisis in the Lebanese Food Sector
Before the October revolution, the pandemic and the Beirut explosion, 1$ was worth 1,500 LBP. Things were seemingly well in Lebanon. People were able to meet their basic needs and feed their families. People are now buying their day-by-day necessities depending on their financial capabilities. Food prices have increased by 395% in 2021 due to price inflation and USD-LBP crisis (1$=17,000LBP) Back in 2019 - prior to the revolution, it would cost a family of 4 an average of 120,000 LBP (80$ based on the 1,500 rate) to buy the following necessities: Rice, sugar, oil, pasta, cheese, meat, pulses, milk and babymilk It now costs an average of 780,000 LBP (45$) to buy these necessities. We are now seeing people resorting to theft, or eating from the garbage just to get through the day.
