Hello …Thank you for the interest in my campaign.
Kindly take some minutes to go through my cause or if you are in hurry, please donate to make an impact before leaving.

It has been almost 2 years since the port explosion, and we now have more homeless children and families roaming the streets of Lebanon, with no medical supplies, food, or a roof over their heads.
I’m organizing a fundraising campaign to support the people of Beirut after the explosion that happened in Lebanon. See the picture below:

People of Beirut are really in need of our help. The explosion has led to a situation of leaving more than quarter of a million people without habitable home.



The explosion destroyed the entire section of Downtown and East Beirut.
Thousands of people, including my entire family, lost their homes, leaving over millions of people homeless and penniless. We cannot watch them suffer this alone without helping them. We cannot let them die of hunger.


The Lebanon explosion casualties are really praying for help and in need of our help. Please join hands with me in answering their prayers. Let’s provide them with the help and hope they need. May God have mercy on his people in Lebanon.

Kindly fund this campaign to assist & save those casualties by the explosion. Your donation will be used efficiently and go directly to on the ground efforts in Beirut to provide food, clothing, and construction materials, home/shelter for the homeless and solely to those in need of help. I will be using the fund effectively to cater for needy in Lebanon.
Your donation will definitely make a big difference as Lebanon tries to recover.

Thank you for your kindness!


All proceeds will be going to Saint George Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Beirut

In 551 AD a massive earthquake destroyed the whole of Beirut including the "Anastasis cathedral". In the 12th century a cathedral was built in the same location. The structure was badly damaged by a 1759 earthquake and was pulled down to be built new. Construction started in 1764 and the new, larger structure, with one nave and a vaulted ceiling, was completed in 1767. However, the ceiling collapsed killing 90 people, due to the lack of supporting pillars. In 1772 the church was rebuilt on a cruciform plan with three naves, a new portico was added to the north facade, the main western facade was enlarged and a new bell-tower was built on the north-western corner.

In 1783 the cathedral underwent a series of modifications, including the addition of the narthex to the western facade and the enlargement of the apse to fit the central axis of the cathedral's main altar. That same year Younes al-Jbeily offered the church its ornate gilded wooden iconostasis.

The last modifications to the cathedral were made in 1910, with the addition of a vaulted portico to the south facade, the cathedral was further enlarged to the east and the bell tower was moved to the south-east corner. The interior of the cathedral was decorated with ornate frescoes offered by Ibrahim Youssef Saad.

In 1975, following the outbreak of the Lebanese civil war, the cathedral was shelled and vandalized and its elaborate frescoes were left to decay. Most of the icons and part of the iconostasis were stolen; parts of the 18th century iconsostasis were also set on fire. The excavations undertaken under the cathedral during 17 months in 1994–1995 covered 316 square metres (3,400 sq ft) and revealed many archaeological layers that allowed a historical timeline of the church and its surroundings to be constructed. On 10 October 1995 Metropolitan Elias Audi announced plans to restore the war-torn cathedral. The first phase of restoration began in 1998, under the supervision of a committee headed by Ghassan Tueni. The cathedral reopened its doors on 15 December 2003.

Most recent, the cathedral was badly damaged in the Beirut explosions of August 4th, 2020 and now needs our help and support to once again rebuild the church.
