Increased support vital to help children affected by Beirut explosions back to school, couple of month after devastating explosions
183 education facilities damaged or destroyed by the blasts, affecting over 77,000 children and youth as new school year approaches
- BEIRUT, 4 September 2020 – Urgent action and increased support are vital to ensure that all children affected by the Beirut Explosions can access education when the new school year starts this month, UNICEF stated, one month after two massive explosions tore through the city. At least 163 public and private schools were damaged by the explosions – impacting over 70,000 students and 7,600 teachers. In addition, 20 TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) schools were damaged, impacting approximately 7,300 students.
In order to help bridge this educational gap, BBHope has committed to ensuring a rich educational experience, as well as tools for a brighter future for as many of these children as possible.
Not only is education a primary function of our organization, but we strive to introduce each child to Jesus Christ, a true friend they can call upon at any moment in life.
