On August 4th, a massive explosion ripped through central Beirut, killing hundreds of people and injuring thousands more. The blast rocked the Lebanese capital’s port area, flattened buildings, and caused significant damage to three Lasallian schools, most severely Collège Sacre Coeur-Frères Gemmayzé.
Already extremely fragile politically and reeling from the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, this catastrophe was the tipping point which has overwhelmed the people of Beirut. As a result, these events seriously compromise the capacity of our academic centers to provide students with an education.
For this reason, the De La Salle Brothers through La Salle International have launched an emergency appeal. All donations contributed to this campaign will go directly to educational services and humanitarian relief in Beirut.
