COVID-19 has endangered many lives and entire communities around the world. In fact, this pandemic has particularly challenged fragile societies and put them at risk of collapse. Lebanon had already experienced its share of hardship and insecurity. But the devastating explosion that occurred in Beirut on August 4th only added to the distress of a population in difficulty.
We are at the side of our friends from the MMM Lebanon team. We have been made aware of “their desire for struggle and resilience, bearing in mind the essential role of mothers as agents of peace and instigators of renewal and development”.
We were also informed of the current launch of the trauma management workshops through the mobilisation of mothers and young people. We will be there to help and support them because MMM Lebanon persists “in believing in a better future for their beloved Lebanon”.
This is what MMM Liban president, Terine Hassergian, and the secretary, Soha Tabbara, told us.
