Serving people in need since 1957, the Order of Malta Lebanon has been quick in responding to the crisis in Beirut.
In the first weeks following the blast, the Order of Malta urgently provided healthcare support with first aid response, mobile medical units, assessing damage to local healthcare centers, and helping support the fight against the pandemic.
Its dedicated volunteer-based youth group, the Youth of the Order of Malta has been working around the clock in relief operations.
In the wake of the explosion, around 200 youth volunteers worked to assess the damage, clean up rubble, restore livelihoods, provide food assistance, offer shelter at the Chabrouh hosting center, and provide psychological support to those who need it.
Currently, they are invested in restoring and refurbishing 100 houses in Geitawi from scratch. Their mission is to give residents back a place they can call home, they told The961.

Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
