I offer this post to all the Lebanese and NON-Lebanese who died in the building collapse in Achrafieh. May they rest all in peace and let’s hope such incidents will never be repeated.
What saddened me today is that one of the Sudanese workers who died used to work in the same building as I did. I used to see him every morning bringing the garbage out. He was a very polite and calm individual. I wish I knew what his name was.
Here’s an incomplete list of the people who died:
– Anna Maria Abdelkarim, 15 years old, Lebanese.
– Jihad, Farhat & Charlie Naim (3 brothers) & their father Tanios Naim.
– Laith, the deaf and mute boy.
If anyone has a complete list of the victims, please do share it as I cannot find it anywhere.
“Laith, the deaf and mute boy”. Seriously man? is that the best description you could find? Shou atrash el day3a? Jean
Everyone who followed the news on that day knew about a boy inside who was deaf and mute. Looking for him was impossible with his condition and that’s how he was mentioned in newspapers. That’s all.
You cannot find any other names as cheap foreign labour does not have a face in Lebanon. For all those up-tight Lebanese, who do not lift a finger in order to clean their own shit, the lives of these people are worthless.
