In order to support the Orthodox Churches and faithful who were adversely impacted by the Beirut blast, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America will donate $50,000 to a special collection.
On August 4, a fatal explosion in Beirut left at least 150 people dead, 6,000 wounded and 300,000 homeless.
The large amount was collected and distributed to the Ecumenical Patriarchate to be added to their worldwide collection to help meet and relieve the great and urgent needs of the Orthodox members in Lebanon.

[THREAD] 1/8 Contributing to the debate around the roles of the State, NGOs & intl partners in aid process post #BeirutBlast. Yes, NGOs can’t replace state institutions & sidelining the State could undermine long-term recovery prospects… BUT
2/8 What are State institutions doing & showing to convince citizens, NGOs & intl partners to engage & re-channel part of the aid through the institutions? Some interesting & promising initiatives live @impact_gov @LebanonAid driven by dedicated teams, open to scrutiny… BUT
3/8 State institutions have shown #Lebanon representatives' disgraceful attitude during the Dec2 intl donors meeting. @General_Aoun’s speech focused more on scoring political points against @saadhariri on gov formation & didn’t address citizens’ pain outlined by NGOs & partners

It's been four months. Four months with no accountability, no answers - not even an apology. I can't be the only one who still thinks of the ones we lost. On this sorrowful day, I'd like to remind you of some of them.

The ten firefighters who were literally sent to their graves. They were not aware of the ammonium nitrate stored at the port, despite several senior Lebanese officials knowing of its existence. None of them had the conscious to stop them from going in. #beirutblast Image

Oh... oh... Hassounah is speaking live now...

Just what we need at this surreal day!
#Nasrallah rushes to deny #Netanyahu’s claim that Netanyahu shows that Hezbollah has an arms depot adjacent to gas canisters in the Jonah. He invites journalists to visit the place!
#Nasrallah is clearly feeling the pressure. He is fully aware that his popularity has plummeted after #BeirutBlast
The way #Nasrallah talks as if he is the cute lamb of #Lebanon is suffocating!

#Beirut un incendie majeur au port de Beyrouth
Je serai sur @BFMTV dans 15' minutes pour vous donner plus d'éléments
Cette image est dingue... Impossible de prendre un taxi pour arriver sur les lieux de l'incendie donc je cours dans #Beyrouth paniquée et je lève la tête pendant mon direct pour voir ça... alors que je suis encore à 5-7 minutes du port à pieds @BFMTV Image

OMG.. #Lebanon
Another inferno in #Beirut, a new blast in the port!
Update #Lebanon

According to this 👇👇, sources from Lebanese army reports that #BeirutBlast II is caused by a fire in storage facility of oil and tyres in Beirut port.

Funny how that happened after US imposed sanctions on 2 politicians with links to #Hezbollah alliance!

Mentally, are we ok? With trauma after trauma, we are stressed, and something has got to give. Yet, access to mental healthcare in 🇱🇧 suffers from underfunding, stigma, and lack of required facilities. At RHUH, we and our partners have been busy, an overview:
The mental health projects at RHUH are a result of collaboration between six different partners. In addition to RHUH, our partners include the @NMHPLebanon,@ICRC_lb, @MdM_mideast, @MSF_Lebanon, and @Skoun_org. The projects are summarized in the following:
The Community Mental Health Center (CMHC), at RHUH, aims at providing patients with access to quality evidence-based services in the field of mental health. Psychologists, and social workers from @MdM_mideast, and psychiatrists from @ICRC_lb provide a patient-centered service. Image

53-yr-old Marie's Karantina home was wrecked in the #BeirutBlast, her son was injured & her grandchild fell unconscious. Now she's not only dealing with trauma, but also hunger & having to rebuild her home w no aid

"We were never hungry before," she says
"I have to go to my son’s house to take showers and to clean my clothes every day. Every time I leave my home, I leave it in fear that someone’s going to break in & take the little we have left away from us. We are desperate."
"In truth, I don’t have any more feelings. I’m spent. I love Beirut. But the situation here is disgusting. We’re done. We’ve lived in this appalling situation for long enough. We were born in it. We’re living in it. And now we will die in it."

#Beirut one month after #BeirutBlast ongoing rescue operation in #Gemmayzeh #Lebanon
Les secouristes chiliens continuent, gravat après gravat. Je n'ai plus les mots pour tenter de vous décrire cette émotion collective, entre détresse et espoir, pour 0,01% de chance qu'une vie soit là dessous. Je n'ai jamais vu ça, sur aucun de mes reportages... #BeirutBlast
une scène de guerre... Mais sans la guerre.
Incompréhensible, inexplicable.

Le jour se lève 1mois jour pour jour, après le #BeirutBlast Une opération de sauvetage a lieu depuis hier soir où une présence humaine a été détectée sous les décombres, elle n'a continué que sous la pression de la colère populaire;
et c'est tout le #Liban qui retient son souffle
Au fond, un sauvetage quasi désespéré qui dure depuis des heures.
Je m'éloigne pour tw. car il est demandé à ce que tous les téléphones soient totalement éteints pour ne pas interférer avec les outils de recherche ou masquer le bruit ne serait-ce que d'un souffle. #BeirutBlast Image
Ce n'est pas la police qui sécurise la zone, mais les gens eux mêmes, souvent des visages apperçus sur les photos du mouvement révolutionnaire qui ont fait le tour du monde avant que le covid ne vienne l'essouffler.

Le silence est prenant, assez bouleversant.

BEIRUT: One month since the #BeirutBlast killed over 180 people, injured more than 6,500 and displaced some 300,000 residents... and still thousands of people simply can’t afford a front door.

#COVID19 #Inequality #Lebanon Image
In fact, a single front door in #Beirut currently costs 2 months’ worth of a minimum-wage salary...

Lebanon's longstanding inequality, massive inflation & now #COVID19 have compounded this humanitarian disaster.

#BeirutBlast un mois plus tard... À quelques heures de l'arrivée du Pdt @EmmanuelMacron

Alain Chaouch et sa famille on vu leur maison détruite, entièrement soufflée par l'explosion du 4 août. "Le travail d'une vie" pour son père, qui n'a cessé d'entretenir ce bien... Image
... classé comme bâtiment historique de Catégorie A (la plus protectrice).

Ce n'est qu'après son passage à la TV que le Ministère de la culture a fait poser un toit provisoire et des structures de consolidation pour prévenir un effondrement des étages

Depuis... Plus rien.

Il déblaye seul ce qu'il peut, en prenant bien sûr des risques énormes à travailler sans casque dans des décombres franchement instables.

Il s'inquiète de l'automne qui arrive, et les pluies avec.

Sa colère contre le gouvernement libanais est insondable.

#Lebanon> #Hezbollah's Hassan #Nasrallah's hands are tied.

Alex Fishman explains how.

After the #BeirutBlast, ⅓ of the city's residents were left homeless.

If potential #Israel|i strikes would cause thousands of S. Leb. residents to move N., it'd further destabilize #Beirut.
#Israel, hence, assumes that the people in #Lebanon would unequivocally turn on #Hezbollah, which's already under immense public pressure due to the inner turmoil currently enveloping the nation.

Thus, Israel assesses that HZB has no wish to escalate the situation at the border.
Fishman notes that #Nasrallah is the 1 who determines the strategy for the so-called "equation" policy, while the decision of when to carry out a given attack from #Lebanon on #Israel|is is left to the discretion of #Hezbollah's local commanders.

Opération séduction insolite cet après midi, alors que je traversais le #Badaro pour me rendre à une interview.

Sachez que l'armée libanaise régulière ne se laisser pas volontiers prendre en photo de manière impromptue (hors embed)
#Liban #BeirutBlast Image
He bien aujourd'hui, j'ai demandé l'autorisation de photographier cette opération de distribution de vivres alors que je passais par là.
D'abord je me suis faite dégager.
Puis le lieutenant m'a rattrapée.

Et il m'a demandé de revenir prendre des photos. Mise en scène comprise. Image
C'est une anecdote, rien de plus. Mais ça dit tout du fossé entre la population libanaise et l'"État"(mille guillemets)
Ils se savent tellement détestés...
Aujourd'hui on a voulu montrer à la journaliste française de passage que le #Liban s'occupe des citoyens.
Pas de problème :
