Beirut Emergency Fund 2020

8.7 Million

On August 4, 2020, a massive and deadly explosion rocked Beirut. It came at a time when Lebanon was facing its worst economic crisis, COVID-19 and unprecedented levels of poverty and hunger.

Over 200 people were killed; over 6,000 thousand injured, and over 300,000 have been left homeless. Businesses, schools, homes and hospitals were destroyed.
