    The AUBMC Disaster Response to the August 4 Beirut Explosion

    Within minutes of the explosion at the Beirut port on August 4, our medical faculty, nurses, and staff were caring for hundreds of trauma cases, including a number of serious and critical cases. As President Khuri said in his message to the AUB community on August 5th, “We must do all we can, and some measure beyond that, to care for those injured and heal the terrible unseen wounds this has created.” That is what we will do.

    Several members of our AUB community have reached out to us asking how they can support AUBMC’s efforts at this critical time when Lebanon is already facing so many challenges. We are launching an appeal for the AUBMC Disaster Response to the August 4 Beirut Explosion Fund. Proceeds from this fund will be used to support patient care at our medical center for victims of the August 4 explosion.

    We know that we can count on you for help. Thank you!

    We also want to hear from you if we can be of help to you or your loved ones:
