Lebanon and Lebanese families are going through some of the most severe times in the country’s history. On top of the social, political and economic crises came Covid-19 which significantly exacerbated the pre-existing challenges. As if that wasn’t enough, the event on August 4th, 2020 in the Beirut port area and its aftermath rocked the population to its core. The economic crisis has now left 50% unemployed, seen the Lebanese Lira lose 90% of its value and rapid inflation has pushed prices for regular goods and services out of reach of the majority. In September 2019, 33% of the local population were considered to be below the poverty line, eight months later in April 2020 that figure had already risen to 50% and now that figure is closer to 65%. Many BHS families have been affected and now require support to meet the educational needs of their children. By supporting the Bursary Fund, you will directly ensure BHS students can continue with their first class Quaker education provided at the school, making sure no student is left behind due to the crises.
