Henley Rotary Next Webinar: Helping Children in Devastated Beirut

It is two-and-a-half months since a massive explosion ripped through Beirut killing more than 200 people, injuring some 6,500 others and leaving an estimated 300,000 people homeless. Since then, the tragedy has dropped off the world’s news agenda — but it is still very real to the people of the city.

Amongst the rubble was the paediatric wing and paediatric & neonatal operating theatre of Beirut’s Karantina Hospital, both of which provided essential services to local mothers and children.

The Rotary Club of Henley-on-Thames wants to help and would invite you to join in. It is honoured to host Habib Saba, president of the Beirut Cosmopolitan Rotary, for a public webinar on October 20 at 6:30 pm.

Habib will explain the true impact of the explosion on ordinary Beiruitis and how his club is both helping the reconstruction of the paediatric facilities, and supporting the repair and reconstruction of windows and doors for residents who can’t afford it.
