The appalling attacks in Paris on the 13th of November 2015 elicited an enormous response from our school, the recent devastating explosion in Beirut almost none. We as an international school must show solidarity to all peoples. In this light, the fundraising action undertaken by our Lebanese pupil Sina and her colleagues is all the more important to mark in Buzz in our fight against injustice and discrimination at the NMS. Please read her report below.

On the 4th of August 2020, an explosion ripped through the Lebanese capital city, Beirut. The cause of the explosion was 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in the port without any safety measures. Who is to blame? A negligent government that cares about money more than human lives. The result: 180 deaths, 300 000 people displaced. I am the daughter of Lebanese parents and have been emotionally and mentally strained by the Beirut Port Explosions. 


On the 20th of August, we organized a fundraiser selling Ice Pops in the secondary school campus to raise money for humanitarian aid. We gathered 455€ to donate to the German Red Cross (which is sending supplies and money to the Lebanese Red Cross.)

Please consider supporting the Red Cross using the following link:

To all secondary students: stay tuned for any upcoming fundraisers! I would like to thank everyone who supported us with organizing the fundraiser, the NMS school for embracing their diversity and allowing me to do what's right and to everyone who so graciously donated.
