Call for Donations: Support for Our Partners in Lebanon

The explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, destroyed large parts of the city. 165 people lost their lives, 6,000 were injured. The Saint Joseph University of Beirut, with which the University of Bremen has cooperated closely since 2012, is also affected by the destruction.

The five campuses of the Saint Joseph University of Beirut (USJ) are not located far away from Beirut port. The university maintains a partnership with the Faculty of Law at the University of Bremen. In the past years, several Bremen students spent their semesters abroad there.

Four of the five campuses were seriously damaged by the explosion. The damage amounts to over five million US dollars. The damage to the university hospital is estimated as costing around two million US dollars. Further information can be found via the support appeal from the partner university.

You can contribute to the rebuilding of the Saint Joseph University in Beirut and the university hospital by donating: https://www.usj.edu.lb/idonate/.
