Published: 21Jan2021

When alumnus Jade Dagher (MBA’95) realized the pressure placed on over 300 Lebanese students studying at McGill by the tragic Beirut explosions on August 4, 2020, he moved into action. An active volunteer mentor and guest lecturer, Dagher contacted Desautels senior development officer, Joy Bennett, and jumpstarted a support fund by donating $12,000 and calling on McGill alumni to contribute.
