U.S. sanctions targeting #Iran's mullahs have forced the IRGC to significantly decrease the Hezbollah budget.
As a result, Hezbollah is launching such vehicles & other efforts, literally begging locals for donations.

Difference between pallets of cash vs. crushing sanctions.
Via Fox News:
Newly declassified intelligence shows that Palestinian terror group Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” due to lack of funding from the Iranian regime.
State Department officials say the intelligence that was shared exclusively with Fox News reveals Tehran’s diminishing resources and influence within the region, prompting cutbacks among groups backed by the regime.
This comes amid a tough sanctions regime introduced by the U.S., which sent the country into a recession, with inflation topping 50 percent.
Due to lack of funding from Iran, Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” while other Shia militia groups were told by Iran that they need to find other sources of revenue as Iran is no longer in a position to provide them the funds.
