Many schools in Lebanon have reopened, including Beirut Baptist School, a ministry of LSESD. Principal Alice Wazir says while the school has suffered periodic COVID-19 lockdowns, the Beirut explosion also damaged several classrooms this summer. Read more about this explosion and its effect on Beirut here.

Along with many other buildings in Beirut, BBS lost several windows when the shockwave of the explosion shattered glass around the city. “We had to decide what buildings we can use, and what buildings we cannot. Some of the buildings, in which only the glass was affected, we were able to fix immediately. Which means that we were able to function with 30% of capacity.”

LSESD has also helped repair several other Beirut schools that were damaged in the explosion. You can read more about that here.
