"Questscope has deep roots in Beirut that go back to the early 1980s. We've seen the Lebanese people overcome the most difficult circumstances over the years. And now they will rebuild, brick by brick, as they always do," says Curt Rhodes, Founder and International Director of Questscope. "We stand beside them as they begin to restore their homes, their city, and their futures for themselves and for their children.""Hundreds of thousands of people were made instantly homeless as a result of the explosion in the Beirut harbor, and likely four times that number will have homes that are now in unstable buildings or without doors and windows," adds Dr. Mowafak Yafi, a Questscope board member that lives in Beirut. Through the support of Questscope and Alight, Dr. Yafi will be organizing channels for implementing assistance to people to restore their homes. Questscope has a robust and extended history with planning and construction partners throughout Lebanon that provide services such as housing and building repairs, and basic infrastructure restoration. These longstanding relationships ensure accountability in project delivery and fiscal integrity.
