The Santos Port Authority (SPA) manifests its solidarity towards the victims of the explosion that took place in the port region of Beirut this Tuesday, August 4th.

In a year filled with uncertainties on the global scenery, the news of this tragedy weigh on us particularly. The Lebanese community in Brazil is the world’s largest, comprising 10 million Lebanese nationals and descendants. The Port of Santos, once the country’s main port for immigration, feels honored in having played an important role in the creation of this profound link of fraternity and cultural communion between our countries.

By publicly expressing our deepest sorrow and sympathies, we wish to demonstrate the union of the international port community, founded in cooperation, mutual assistance and commerce between different peoples and cultures. We extend our condolences to the Lebanese population, and make ourselves available for support in these challenging times.
