In the ensuing hours following the massive explosion in Beirut on August 4, the Howard Karagheusian Primary Health Care Center in Bourj Hammoud, treated 341 people while half the staff was clearing away the rubble and shattered glass from the damaged building. The director of the center, Serop Ohanian says being resilient is not easy but it is the only choice. And while it is anticipated that many people, especially the young, might leave the Armenian communities of the Middle East, Ohanian says the Center will always be there to take care of those left behind.
