'The Light of Beirut' collection of Vanina aims to contribute to the Beirut Heritage Initiative. 25% of the profits generated by the collection are dedicated to support their preservation and reconstruction efforts.
As a response to the emergency following the 4th of August explosion that hit Beirut, the Beirut Heritage Initiative (BHI), was launched as an independent and inclusive collective, in favor of restoring the built and cultural heritage of Beirut, and taking part in the reconstruction of the capital. BHI is organized around a team of experts and professionals with complementary skills, such as the Order of Engineers and Architects of Beirut (OEA) and the Beirut Bar Association (BBA), and NGOs specialized in cultural heritage.
It is based on continuous communication between all of the involved stakeholders, such as Beirut Built Heritage Rescue (BBHR2020), the National Heritage Foundation (NHF), Arab Center for Architecture (ACA), International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), International Council Of Museums (ICOM), UN Blue Shield, Save Beirut Heritage (SBH), Live Love Beirut (LLB), Arc-en-Ciel (AEC), Beb w Shebbek (BWS).
