Following the devastating explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, on August 4, and the terrible consequences of at least 200 deaths including many children, people missing, thousands injured, billions in property damage and an estimated 300.000 people ending without homes, the Global Campus of Human Rights expresses solidarity with students, professors and staff colleagues in Beirut.
Our thoughts go out to all of them, their families, their friends and their communities. Since 2017, the Global Campus of Human Rights has been fortunate to work with Saint Joseph University as coordinating university for the Arab region, one of the most active members of our network of 100 Universities around the world, and host of many of our important events in the region.
The explosions that rocked Beirut came under already dire circumstances, as Lebanon has been struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic, distrust in public institutions and many economic and social problems. The level of this tragedy is requiring now not only our expression of support and solidarity but all our efforts including financial contributions and donations.
The Global Campus of Human Rights is now kindly requesting all our dear friends and members of our vast academic network to contribute in this emergency and please donate now to support colleagues and students of GC Arab World.
