Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

Box for Health began with the dream of improving the lives of children in Lebanon.
On August 4, 2020, thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate (equivalent to about 1,155 tons of TNT(stored at the port in Beirut caused the massive explosion that devastated the city on Tuesday; killing more than 178 people, injuring over 6,000, and displacing 300,000 from their homes.
Due to the Box for Health pilot taking place in Lebanon and the company’s close ties to the country, our board feels an ethical responsibility to deliver emergency relief to aid in the Beirut crisis. Box for Beirut is an emergency initiative to deliver essential supplies to Lebanon through local and global partners. These supplies may include necessary medications, clothes, food, and other essentials.
From the date of this announcement until September 15th, all donations to Box for Health will be delivered in emergency relief to Lebanon unless otherwise stated.

We thank you for your support and look forward to making a difference.
