Project overview:

Following the devastating explosion in Beirut at the beginning of August, we are ensuring we can best help those affected. We are working with ICRC, to provide much needed emergency support. Your contribution will go to support hospitals and emergency medical services; help to ensure the resilience of public systems, such as the water supply and mother-and-child care; assisting with identifying the victims of the blast, and reconnecting families; and providing food and essential items to vulnerable households and children in coordination with the Lebanese Red Cross. Your donation will be doubled by UBS Optimus Foundation up to a total of CHF 100,000. (Photo: ICRC, Miriam Atallah)

A message from Ali Janoudi - Head of UBS Wealth Management, Middle East & Africa

On behalf of the fundraising team, I wanted to send you my heartfelt thanks for your donations to our appeal for Lebanon. We are pleased to share that the combined total of donations through various channels, along with matching by UBS Optimus Foundation, has taken our current total raised to over 300,000 CHF.

Following the devastating explosion in Beirut at the beginning of August, we have spent considered time looking at how we can best use your donations to help those affected. In addition to using some of the funds for immediate emergency support, we have been working closely with the ICRC and have together identified two projects where we can make considerable impact.

The first project will work to rebuild destroyed micro, small and medium enterprises, across a wide range of sectors, from food and electronics to mechanics and pharmaceuticals. Our funds will be used to fix physical damage to premises caused by the explosion and will also cover the loss of supplies and other materials needed to get businesses up and running again.

Our second project aims to immediately financially support 25 families who have lost a family member. The funds will also provide a further 25 families with the means to undertake vocational training, at the end of which, they will receive monitored micro-grants to start their own business initiatives.

We are truly grateful that thanks to you – we have been able to support the local community in which we do business – and upon which we depend.

Best,

Ali Janoudi

Head of UBS Wealth Management, Middle East & Africa
