Seeking Australians needing consular assistance in Lebanon
Dear friends of the Australian Embassy in Lebanon
It has been a dreadful week here, on top of a dreadful year for Lebanon.
The good news is that while the Embassy is damaged, all our injured staff are now stitched up and back on deck.
I would be grateful for your help finding any Australians in Lebanon in need of consular assistance. If you know any Australian who needs consular assistance – please let us know on +61 2 6261 3305 or +961 1 960 600, or via email email@example.com.For more information, see my video message here.
You may have seen that Foreign Minister Payne immediately announced $2 million in emergency humanitarian aid for food and medical care.
As a very small contribution and to raise awareness of the need, today I donated blood at AUBMC. The healthcare personnel and first responders – like Ali and Haifa, pictured here – are true heroes.
For updates follow us on Twitter at @SafirAustralia or Australian Embassy, Beirut, Lebanon on Facebook.
Keep safe and take care at this difficult time.
