Focus on Lebanon
This page was created in the aftermath of the August 4, 2020 Beirut explosion, which devastated the city and exacerbated Lebanon’s already failing economy and social inequities.
Our goal for this page is to provide a space where you can find current analysis on Lebanon’s recovery. BCARS members, notably Rami Khouri among others, provide that analysis. We also suggest places where you can help the people of Lebanon, including Palestinian and Syrian refugees, among other vulnerable communities suffering from ills before and after August 4.

A complete list of local and international NGOs working directly on disaster relief, as well as interconnected issues across Lebanon, can be found here.
Follow international journalist and BCARS Executive Committee member, Rami Khouri, for his timely and cutting analysis on current events in Lebanon.
