  • Lebanese LIDTA participants to the rescue!

    Recently, VVD International laid contact again with Tiffany Geara and Georges El Ghafary. Both are participants of the Liberal International Democratic Training Academy (LIDTA), which is a high-level training course on a yearly base for talented young politicians from the Middle East and Northern Africa (or MENA-region) organised by VVD International in cooperation with Liberal International. We contacted Georges and Tiffany to discuss the current vibrant situation in Lebanon. The situation in Lebanon is still critical and it is hard to oversee the problematic (socio)economical and political developments. Before the Coronacrisis, the country faced economic decline, and which was worsened by the Coronacrisis. Eventually, the explosion on the 4th of August in Beirut, left Lebanon literally and figuratively in ruins. Many people still do not have access to basic amenities in Beirut. There is for example not enough food and thousands of houses have become unliveable due to the explosion. As a response to this crisis, Tiffany and Georges established Lebanon 2.0. This NGO is a young and dynamic organisation that is working hard, in various ways, to initiate the rebirth of Lebanon. Lees verder
