In light of the catastrophic events that occurred on August 4th in Beirut, we want to offer our deepest condolences to the Lebanese people. Like many others, one of our team members, Daniel Arab, and his family are affected by this tragedy, too. An explosion, caused by 2.700 tons of ammonium nitrate, ripped through the Lebanese capital, destroying numerous buildings and taking many lives. Many people have lost their homes. We want to support local efforts that aid the Lebanese people and support the reconstruction of Beirut.
As a team we decided to support the shelter and reconstruction NGO Beit El Baraka, which was founded in 2018 and “aims at ensuring a sense of dignity to Lebanese families that have been deprived of their most basic needs”. With a daily video series on their Instagram page, Beit El Baraka documents the disastrous aftermath of the explosion and the daily work they put into the reconstruction of the damaged areas. With our donation we hope to directly support the reconstruction of the city and contribute to ensuring that the people of Beirut will soon be able to return to their homes and lives.
We would like to invite you to join us in donating to Beit El Baraka. Please visit their homepage and specify the cause you would like to support. Donations can be made online via their homepage or bank transfer.
