Rebuilding heritage, culture and education #ForBeirut

The explosions in Beirut, Lebanon left hundreds of deaths and thousands injured and caused severe damage to some of Beirut’s most historic neighborhoods, major museums, galleries and religious sites at a time when Lebanon was already experiencing other crises, including the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a UNESCO special ambassador, I join my family for UNESCO and express my deepest condolences to the families of those affected and would like to appeal to all people to jointly provide our support and participation for the city of Beirut.
