Ragheb Alama opens schools for refugees
Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama has traveled to the UAE after ensuring that his wife and children had left Lebanon safely en route to France. His family does not intend to return until the Israeli attacks are over and conditions in Lebanon are stable once more.
Before leaving Lebanon Ragheb opened a number of schools for refugees forced to leave their homes to avoid Israeli attacks.
The singer’s business manager and brother, Khader Alama, said, “Ragheb is doing all he can from the UAE to help his countrymen in Lebanon by providing aid.”
Ragheb has already sent food items, clothing, medicine and large cash donations, and his efforts are continuous, reported Khader.
The singer has cancelled all entertainment activities, dedicating all of his time to assisting Lebanon.
Shortly before the war, Alama returned from the United States and Canada, where he held a number of concerts. It was his first trip to the US after a four-year absence.
According to the London based Elaph, Ragheb made stops in Michigan, California, and Las Vegas Nevada bringing the spirit of Arab concerts to these areas with significant Arab American populations.
The singer's tour was marked with success in every city, and the number of concert goers exceeded expectations.
