Case Study: Explosion in the port of Beirut, Lebanon:
The August 2020 explosion in the port of Beirut not only destroyed large parts of the capital, people’s lives and dreams, but also sent waves of anger, despair and grief through the whole country. IAHV and the Art of Living Foundation have been conducting HRE workshops for people directly affected by the explosion, as well as continuing supporting other groups in need, such as refugees and health care workers.
