In the year of 2020 in Lebanon, the effects of the large explosion ‘Beirut Blast’ at the city port and the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in an emergency situation. Many families needed medical equipment to take care of their sons, who suffer from DMD/BMD.
The Duchenne Data Foundation and the World Duchenne Organization set up a support program for local communities that has global supervision through a strategic global capacity building program, starting with the emergency in Lebanon.
