Phase I: Rebuilding SMEs Brick and Mortar
"Khaddit Beirut is all what makes me proud of Lebanon. Its people, its approach and its mission align with what I hope for and I am longing for in Lebanon. This is a great opportunity to put our expertise in action and own our destiny."
"Following the Beirut blast, the embodiment of incompetence and corruption, I joined forces with other professionals and academics to do whatever we can to support the inhabitants of Lebanon because it is our duty to be there for each other. Organizing for social good in Lebanon is a necessity, not an option."

"It wasn’t a decision, it was a innate drive to do something in a context of desperation and the ongoing robbing of the dignity of the inhabitants of Lebanon. KB is us and we are KB … this is how it relates to my identity and positionality."
