Responding to the needs of our community members in Beirut after the catastrophic event of the explosion in the Beirut Port, our team of volunteers distributed on 10 and 11 August 2020, 75 food baskets in the Ashrafieh area that was directly affected by the explosion.

In addition, another team visited the families who were directly affected by the blast. The team included a technician who can assess the damages on the spot. Rev. Sargis from Baouchrieh headed with the team to meet the families for prayer and spiritual support.

Each package includes:

  • 2 kg rice
  • 2 kg bulgur
  • 2 kg of sugar
  • 2 kg flour
  • 2 spaghetti
  • 1 Tomato Sauce
  • 1.5 liters of oil
  • 400g tahini
  • 1 kg salt
  • 1/2 kg vermicelli
  • 400 g tea

Assessed house damages will be published by the committee team along with the stories of those who were directly affected by the blast.

The Support Committee appreciates all those who contributed to the delivery of this aid and the assessment, especially the volunteers: Jean Warda, Michel Ayyo, Yaacoub Ismail, and Salamoun Haido.
