Lebanon is facing many struggles and hardships at the moment. Some are fresh and recent while others accumulated throughout the years, but they are all dangerous and negatively affecting the daily life of the Lebanese citizens.
Fortunately, though, Lebanon is also a country deeply loved by its people, whether here or in the diaspora. Everyone is helping in any way they can, and this initiative is one of these examples.
A Lebanese expatriate called Ali Sabrawi just donated 6 oxygen machines to the Ministry of Health in Lebanon. Hamad Hassan received these machines on Tuesday, August 25th.
The oxygen machines will be distributed to Lebanese hospitals to help them face and prepare for the second wave of COVID-19 in the country.
The Minister praised the act, saying that “this generous humanitarian initiative contributes to meeting basic health needs.”
“Humanitarian solidarity,” Hassan expressed, “whether between expatriates and the Lebanese citizens or between the residents themselves, will be the defense barrier in the battle to confront the outbreak of the virus.”
On that note, Italy has come to Lebanon’s rescue in fighting the now-exponential spread of coronavirus, launching the Cedar Emergency, which involves several field hospitals in Beirut, among other pertinent support, including specialized medical equipment.
