On August 4th, 2020 a massive explosion erupted in the port of Beirut, Lebanon. The training center for the Lebanese Rowing Federation was completely destroyed from the blast. The facility was completely leveled and all rowing equipment is beyond repair.

Farah Jaroudi  and Rodrigue Ibrahim are rowers and coaches from the Lebanese Rowing Federation who share the history of rowing in Lebanon, their personal stories, and the current ReBuildreRow fundraiser taking place in coordination with World Rowing.
