2020 BEIRUT EXPLOSION
By now everyone around the world is aware of the tragedy that occurred on Tuesday August 4, 2020 that struck the jewel of the Mediterranean, Lebanon. The ramifications of the explosion within Beirut’s seaport was not only felt physically and emotionally in the heart of the afflicted region but the heartache for the Lebanese people has spread like wildfire across the entire globe.
This country which is a piece of heaven, a proud mountain bejeweled with a crown of white snow and a beacon of light and truth in the Levant, is suffering. We have all seen and heard of the dead and the wounded and our hearts and prayers go out to them and their loved ones.
However, we now have 1000s upon 1000s of people that have been rendered homeless and destitute. In addition, an entire infrastructure has literally become a heap of rubble. Prior to this disaster, Lebanon was already experiencing a collapse within its financial sector and with this recent devastating event this small country, yet great home of the Cedars of Lebanon is in desperate need for everyone’s help and assistance.
The Metrolina Phoenician Club (MPC) has set up the following account / link on our website via GoFundMe where people can contribute to the MPC and we in turn will forward any and all donations to the following NGOs: DAFA Campaign and Beit El Baraka.
Please note that due to the urgency of this matter, the MPC will be contributing $2,500 for the first $2,500 collected over the upcoming 7 days. Our goal is to collect at least $20,000.
Whether it is $1 or $$$$, do not delay your charitable donations because the citizens of Lebanon need your help now.
You also have the choice to donate directly to the NGOs listed above, directly via the following links:
In summary, we are urging everyone to contribute towards sending financial assistance / aid to the people of Lebanon. Again, the MPC Board urges you to give and be charitable. It doesn’t matter how much you are able to contribute. What matters is that you are able to give to a noble and just cause for a people and country in need to help them get back on their feet.
Please be generous because Lebanon needs you now more than ever!
We leave you with one final thought:
The Cedar Trees of Lebanon have always symbolized resilience, immortality, strength and elevation.
