Following the explosion that occured on August 4, 2020 in Beirut Port, the Lebanese defence council has declared Beirut as a "disaster zone" (AFP). This has resulted in massive damages, which includes the following at the moment:

  • To this moment, Lebanese authorities have said at least 73 people have been killed and some 3,700 wounded (ALJAZEERA)
  • "Hospitals in Lebanon’s capital have been forced to treat patients in parking lots after multiple explosions damaged hospitals"(AlArabiya). Saint George Hospital, one of the biggest hospitals in Beirut has been forced to shut down and direct patients elsewhere due to significant damages (NYTimes).
  • 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate exploded in Beirut port.
  • Lebanon's Health Minister stated that many people are missing until now. Loved ones of missing people are searching emergency departments but it is difficult to search at night without electricity. (Reuters)
  • All available Lebanese Red Cross ambulances from North Lebanon, Bekaa and South Lebanon are being dispatched to Beirut in order to provide support with the rescue and evacuation of patients (Lebanon Red Cross).

Lebanon is unable to sustain itself at this devastating period. With rising economic difficulties and covid 19 cases, this explosion has put our country at an emergency stage. Let's put collective effort into assisting our country with this crisis.

All funds will be distributed to St George Hospital and the Lebanese Red Cross that are in urgent need during this catastrophe to assist people with this high extent of damages.

As the situation changes and the circumstances may unfold differently, updates will be provided here on selected organisations and fund distribution based on needs. Please share widely.
