Entrepreneur and restauranteur Aline Kamakian was hosting a staff meeting in her restaurant near the port when the explosion in Beirut went off. The restaurant she worked to create for 20 years was immediately destroyed, and the 25 members of her team in the space were all injured. She joined the podcast to update us on the disaster, the quick work she and her team have done to start serving their community, and the hope she’s seen in the way people are taking care of one another. Tune into to hear from this powerful woman, and support her restaurant’s recovery through GoFundMe here. https://www.gofundme.com/f/mayrig
