On behalf of all at ISD, our hearts go out to Beirut and Lebanon.

We are heartbroken by the devastation we have seen in Beirut, a city that we love and whose people we have worked closely with for the cause of peace. We stand with our friends, staff and partners in the region during this difficult time.

نحن نتألم بسبب الدمار الذي شهده العالم في بيروت
البارحة، المدينة التي نحبها والتي نعمل فيها و مع أهلها من أجل نشر السلام.
نقف اليوم مع أصدقائنا وموظفينا وشركائنا في لبنان خلال هذه الفترة العصيبة.
