"Losing Touch" - Book sale for Beirut

<p>9 years ago, we - Diane, Paul and Marielle - went around the streets of Beirut to meet inspiring people whose trades were disappearing.&nbsp;50 testimonies and portraits of wonderful men and women. Their passion, their dreams, their advice, and their unwavering love for this city.</p> <p><strong>Back then, Beirut was already changing and we wanted to encapsulate its soul. Little did we know that a few years later, on an August afternoon, it would be totally and brutally destroyed.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>This sale&#39;s purpose is to keep honoring Beirut&#39;s heritage, help rebuild it and restore its soul by donating the revenues to NAHNOO, a Lebanese NGO having an impact on the ground.<br /> <br /> <em>Book by <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/dianemehanna/" target="_blank">Diane Mehanna</a> and <a href="https://fr.linkedin.com/public-profile/in/mariellekhayat?challengeId=AQGltaSvUCYovAAAAXQlVvDZMCUrGZ7gJq4Ux_--9mObmG85o1rLDRmdhWq4azLJ_yWJD4g0FtBkJUEeQvFGLYZg4z8pIYQRxQ&amp;submissionId=10025ece-c17e-2e16-c62b-37f7ce77307f" target="_blank">Marielle Khayat</a>, photos by Paul Gorra, published by Tamyras.</em><br /> Texts in French and English</p>

Allocation of funds

<p><strong>Since this book was always about honoring the Beirutis, 100% of the revenues will be donated to NAHNOO.</strong></p> <p>​NAHNOO is a non-governmental organization that works towards an inclusive society, focusing on three key subjects: good governance, public spaces and cultural heritage.<br /> <strong>The reason why we chose NAHNOO as the beneficiary NGO </strong>is that they have several projects that benefit the types of artisans that we talk about in the book. They support their development, develop&nbsp;studies to dignify their trade, provide trainings to enrich their skills, etc.<br /> Since August 4th, they have been focusing their efforts on the most vulnerable areas and people, to ensure a strong impact on a local and national&nbsp;level.<br /> To learn more about NAHNOO:&nbsp;<a href="http://nahnoo.org/">http://nahnoo.org/</a></p> <p><strong>IMPORTANT NOTE:&nbsp;</strong><strong>The payment system does not accept payments from Lebanon and some other specific countries.</strong> If you wish to purchase a book and are unable to do it on this site, please contact us directly and we&#39;ll find a way:<strong>&nbsp;</strong><br /> <em>By whatsapp on&nbsp;+33 7 85 15 10 84&nbsp; or by email&nbsp;on&nbsp;mariellekhayat@gmail.com</em><br /> <br /> <img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679866/281527_120551668101779_1973636989_n-1598353855.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679864/522407_120551024768510_1091436007_n-1598353834.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679867/644087_120552161435063_1182683632_n-1598353910.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679868/384271_120552228101723_457734872_n-1598353927.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679870/384203_120551964768416_1980853452_n-1598353940.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679871/IMG_0504-1598354006.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679876/IMG_0505-1598354862.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/679877/IMG_0503-1598354919.jpg" width="100%" /></p>
