CCCL is a not-for-profit organization that helps treat childhood cancer and is affiliated with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (SJCRH) and works in close coordination with the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC). Most of Beirut’s hospitals were badly damaged, and many children suffering from cancer were transferred to CCCL. The center has treated more than 1740 children with cancer, with an incredible cure rate of 80%. To continue the free treatment, the center relies on donations.
Music has the power to make a cultural shift and inspire people to come together. It’s historically played a vital role in making change, empowering communities, and giving hope in a time of crisis.
