Telethon
Stouh Beirut

For the ninth consecutive year, our hand is still extended to you so that we go on together and no matter how big the challenges are, we insist to fulfill our humanitarian mission in organizing the annual humanitarian event “Telethon Stouh Beirut” on the 23rd of December 2021, so that we can experience the love and giving spirit.
Regrettably, the Lebanese living conditions are deteriorating. Consequently, our mission has become even harder to achieve. Under these challenging circumstances, our “Telethon” this year, comes with greater responsibilities and greater demand.
Our goal is to stand next to the people who have medical issues and critical illnesses and families who are in urgent need, we will do our best to cover their suffering faithfully as we always did to give them back the hope in a life they deserve the most.
There are very many social and health cases, but since their numbers have become greater than we could possibly handle, we had to limit ourselves to only a few of them.
This year’s biggest challenge is Anthony Najjar, a 22-year-old young man.
The sweet guy is a typical Lebanese citizen like you and me. He has love and hope in his heart, but he has reached his limits, and he needs our help to bring light to the darkness of his pain and help his heart beat again. Anthony needs a heart transplant at a cost of 600,000 Euros to allow him to continue his young life among us and his loved ones.
Hand in hand, we must work to help Omar and Nagham defeat their cancer so that it doesn’t devour their innocent childhoods.
We must work together so Peter Jack doesn’t lose his long battle with an illness he’s fought for 7 challenging years.
We must work together so that Afif wins his battle against cancer and remains with his children.
We must work together so that Charbel can live his life like the rest of us, and for Marie’s heart so that it keeps beating, and for Alaa so he can fulfill his dream of getting the electric chair that will ease his pain and fulfill his many needs.
We must work together so that Elie can live his life without pain.
And because humanity is about continuity… Julie’s laughter deserves to be heard and deserves to have us at her side this year as well, as disease shouldn’t kill such a beautiful young heart who has worked so hard to survive.
And we must continue with our humanitarian duty with Maryam and Zainab, who need lifelong follow-up and treatment.
Be many, like you are every year, on the 23rd of December 2021 starting 5 pm till midnight
Together, we must work so we can all celebrate during these holidays, so some joy can remain in this country whose resurrection has been a long time coming.

We need your help!
