Joining Forces In Time Of Crisis To Assist in Relief Efforts in Beirut

In light of the disaster that hit Beirut, Lebanese diaspora organizations, SEAL,  LIFE,  LebNet — joined by Jamhour Alumni (in Europe and the US) and the non-governmental US based Kuwait-America Foundation — have formed a unified humanitarian effort under the Beirut Emergency Fund 2020.

On Aug 4th, 2020 Beirut was rocked by a massive explosion, causing catastrophic humanitarian, economic and public health crises. Over 170 people were killed, 6,000 thousand wounded, and hundreds more have been reported missing. The search for victims continues, and the death toll keeps rising. Adding to this tragedy, thousands of homes have been shattered and destroyed leaving 300,000 Lebanese displaced with no shelter.

Our aim is to amplify coordination, outreach and impact
We will be working together with Qudurat and Ruwwad Al Tanmeya, and other Lebanese NGOs on the ground, with the support of 3QA, to ensure that the funds are disbursed in a coordinated manner to well vetted NGOs, based in Lebanon and that focus their efforts on the most pressing needs resulting from this tragedy: Shelter, Food, Medication/Medical Support, Rehabilitation and Environment.

We will also be collaborating with Impact Lebanon on the allocation and disbursement of funds to avoid any duplication in funding.

Disbursement of the funds will be strictly governed with full transparency about recipient organizations. To date the following NGOs have been selected:  AlGhinaArcencielBeit El BarakaLebanon NeedsLebanese Red CrossNusaned and Offre Joie. Additional ones are currently in the vetting process and we will be regularly updating the list.

We need to act fast to assist in relief efforts to help the Lebanese cope with this tragedy.

We are happy to announce the first round of disbursement, totaling $2.0 million, has been allocated to:
Hospitals: St George, Geitawi, Hotel Dieu
Medical Support: Lebanese Red Cross, Arcenciel, Lebanon Needs
Shelter and Reconstruction: AlGhina, Beit El Baraka, Nusaned, Offre Joie

We urge you to keep sharing, to donate now and wherever possible to utilize your companies matching programs to match your individual donations.
