It has been 3 weeks since Beirut witnessed a devastating blast leaving hundreds dead, thousands injured and hundreds of thousands homeless.
Our offices at St Georges Hospital University Medical Center (from where IDRAAC has been operating since 1982), were destroyed and the hospital suffered extensive damage leaving it nonfunctional for the first time in its 150 years of existence. Even worse, we lost 4 nurses (including one from the psychiatry unit), 12 patients and several visitors!
The psychological impact of this catastrophe is HUGE! This came in addition to the dire economic situation that Lebanon is going through and the COVID-19 pandemic.
From day one, we activated a special hotline (+961-3-730475) to be able to support anyone needing psychological help and we also started a walk in clinic providing care to any person affected from that blast.
We need to rebuild the inpatient and outpatient facilities at St Georges Hospital University Medical Center as well as continue offering FREE services to any person affected from the blast. We count on your generosity to help us continue in our mission by clicking on idraac.org/donate
You can be sure that every dollar donated will be spent for the sake of mental health in Lebanon! We count on your generosity.
On behalf of the whole IDRAAC team.
