Rebuilding Beirut, Rebuilding Lives

World News

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Lebanon is mobilizing to help those affected by the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on 4th August.

Vincentians are providing full emotional and material support as well as health care to the people affected by this tragedy. To this end, projects are being undertaken to improve the lives of those who have been hit by Beirut’s explosion. 

With this in mind, the SSVP Lebanon has launched two initiatives: ‘Home renovation initiative’ and ‘RIS(m)E’ (Rising again starts with the reconstruction of SMEs). Both initiatives are focused on rebuilding homes and businesses which were damaged by the explosion. Reconstruction works of over 235 households and 51 small and medium-sized businesses have already finished. The target, though, is the reconstruction of 1,000 households and 300 businesses.
