The massive explosion on August 4, 2020, resulted in devastating destruction to the city of Beirut and its port and the main Christian area displacing 300,000 people. The Rosary Sisters Hospital was severely affected due to its immediate proximity to the Beirut port (less than 500 meters). The hospital operates under the guidance of the Holy See in Rome, and its funding has always been dependent on donors and charitable organizations. Rebuilding this very vital healthcare institution in this very critical time, requires the Knights of Columbus help.

Rebuilding this very vital healthcare institution in this very critical time, the hard situation of national economic crisis and hyperinflation, and covid-19 invasion, required also the Knights of Columbus help and our charitable donations. The Hospital Director Sister Nicolas Akiki made a cry for help. She said:"Thanks God Anyway, There is no hospital any more, but with the power of Virgin Mary, we will continue our mission and we will not accept to leave Lebanon. So my call is for any one who can help us."
