AUBMC Corona Response Fund

As I am sure you are aware, the situation in Lebanon at the moment is extremely serious. The numbers tell the story: as of January 13, 2021, the Government of Lebanon had confirmed 231,936 cases of COVID-19 and 1,740 related deaths in the country. The numbers also capture the seriousness of the situation at the AUB Medical Center (AUBMC) where the number of COVID patients increased dramatically from 1,152 in November to 1,506 in December. The January numbers are expected to be significantly higher. For example, on January 14, 60 COVID patients were receiving care at the AUB Medical Center. For up-to-date information about the COVID-19 pandemic at AUBMC, please visit aubmc.org.lb/COVID-19.

The pandemic is causing enormous hardship for the people of Lebanon and the country’s medical system. Your help is urgently needed. We are asking for your support for the AUBMC Corona Response Fund at the AUB Medical Center. Your contribution will be used to purchase medical equipment and supplies, personal protective equipment, and testing kits; to support the operations of the Pandemic Evaluation Clinic and Center (PECC) at AUB; and for patient care.

We fully recognize that these are challenging times for all of us – mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially as well. We know therefore that we are not all able to make charitable donations and/or to give as generously as we would like. This means that it is even more important that those of us who can give, contribute as much as we can. Your gift of any amount will make a difference and is deeply appreciated.

For donations to the AUBMC Corona Response Fund, please click either the “Online,” “Wire Transfer,” or “By Mail” tab above.

AUB is classified by the US Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your gift is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
