Beirut, Lebanon, Monday July 12, 2021, believing that sustainable energy interventions can be designed and implemented to target most of the affected families near Beirut port, #Sawa_Mendawi_Beirut was launched to support those families in their transition to alternative energy sources (Household Solar Energy). OSAS has launched its campaign aiming to solve one of the hardest problems that face Lebanese societies nowadays. Immediately after the explosion on the 4th of August 2020, OSAS team performed many energy assessments in the damaged areas and studied the possibility of integrating renewable energy sources in the ongoing renovation plans.

Overall Objectives: 
OSAS launched "#Sawa_Mendawi_Beirut" crowdfunding campaign to solve the biggest problem facing Lebanese people nowadays, especially after the explosion of August 4, 2020, the spread of Coronavirus and the current socio-economic crisis in the country. Directly after the blast, our team conducted several energy assessments in the affected areas and studied the possibility of incorporating renewable energy sources into renovation and reconstruction plans. Our data showed that 15% of the damages are related to Electrical damages including lighting fixtures, water heaters, main power cables, phone and data cables, home electrical appliances (TV, AC, Electronic Devices and refrigerators).
Installation of Solar Energy Systems in Beirut, Greater Beirut and Mount Lebanon.

For instance, Rahaf and Jana are two young sisters who lived in one of the poorest and most affected neighborhoods in Karantina's area. As a result of the explosion, they suffered from a psychological disorder while seeing the destruction in front of them. On the other hand, Mrs. Eliane living in Geitaoui faced a major issue after the blast and during the spread of the Coronavirus. She couldn't help her children study at home without the need of lighting and electricity to power on the internet.
