You Can Help Beirut Disaster Relief By Buying From These Local Businesses

@beirutheritageinitiative | @maisonmakarem

After the blast, so many businesses in Lebanon stepped up to help Beirut by starting initiatives or donating a portion of their sales to various local NGOs helping on the ground.

Many products have already proudly sold out such as those of Poise x Family Aid’s collaborative initiative and others.

The journey of support hasn’t ended. In fact, it is still at its beginning as Beirut hasn’t recuperated yet and there is much to do to see the capital back on its feet and its people back home.

The teaming-up of the nation continues with the citizens doing the possible and the impossible according to their capabilities. That includes business owners, even small businesses, and those who were also hit by the blast.

Here are some of them:

Azar Gems

Lebanese jeweler, Azar Gems, is donating all proceeds from its ‘Li Beirut’ collection to the Assameh hospital that treats newborns and premature babies. Located in the Karantina area, the hospital was severely affected by the blast.

Maison Makarem, fashion house
