Support Beirut Rebuild - Beit El Baraka

We have all been following the catastrophe in Beirut. This has been very personal for us. Beirut is home to us and holds a very special place in our hearts. We have been so overwhelmed watching the devastation that has swept the city and country. Lebanon was already on its knees with a financial crisis causing more than half the population to spiral into poverty and making it increasingly difficult to secure basic needs such as food and diapers. This is compounded by a broken and corrupt government that has completely lost the confidence of its people.

We've been in touch with family and friends on the ground and they've reported that the situation is even more dire and urgent than can be expressed. Hundreds of people are still missing and hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced. Family and friends are personally lodging those that have lost their homes and have nowhere to go.

All we can do from afar is provide support to our loved ones, raise awareness, and provide as much financial assistance as possible. There is an urgent need for relief, but some concerns about getting money into the right hands.

A small group of family and friends have set up this GoFundMe account to make it easier for our friends and colleagues to donate and to target proceeds to an organization that we know well and trust, called Beit El Baraka. This organization is helping those that were impacted by the blast rebuild their homes so that they have a safe place to go. We have been involved with this local NGO and are currently in contact with them directly, so I can assure your contribution will arrive in the right hands and be very impactful.

No amount is too little. We are eternally grateful for any assistance that you can provide.
