OUR MORAL RESPONSIBILITY.
On August 4th, 2020, Beirut, the Capital of our beloved culture was the site of a horrific tragedy: An explosion eliciting specters of World War rocked Lebanon’s main port of entry. The victims were innocent men, women and children… a citizenry already saddled with the insurmountable task of survival during simultaneous pandemic, economic depression, and government collapse. We decided we could no longer sit idly and watch from the safe perch of a web browser. Something had to be done.
INSPIRED BY UNITY.
We are artists. Musicians. Chefs. Painters. Writers. Despite divergent medium, we are united by our common culture. Traces of that culture can be found in every aspect of our lives. Our connection to Our Motherland and it’s people is indelible. Cedar Diaspora is Our mission to give back to the place that has given us our identity.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
All donated funds will be given to the following charities
Humanity & Inclusion teams have worked in Lebanon since 1992, most recently in aid of Syrian refugees, especially those with disabilities, serious, conflict-related injuries, chronic illnesses, and the effects of aging. Their 100-person team in Lebanon, including physical therapists, psycho-social, and livelihood experts, are leading this critical response. They report that our emergency response will last for months as we see beneficiaries through to recovery. Post-surgical physical therapy, in particular, is a vital component of their actions.
Caritas Lebanon provides curative and preventive health care via its primary healthcare centers throughout the country, while its mobile medical units roam the country in all directions, especially in rural areas. The organization implements development projects in order to contribute to the development of the most vulnerable communities and individuals in rural areas by making them self-sufficient.
Inspired by a life-changing event, Children of Mary was established in 2019 in New Jersey. They strive to become one of the most trusted and effective charitable foundations, working hard to improve the lives of those in need.
