LEBANON- EMERGENCY RESPONSE IN BEIRUT
Scores of casualties and thousands wounded in the aftermath of the port explosion that shook the core of the city of Beirut, Lebanon on August 4th, 2020. The Beirut port serves as the main import hub for wheat, corn, soybean, and other essential supplies. The explosion comes at a time when the Lebanese economy is in free fall, and the country is on the brink of a comprehensive collapse, and more importantly in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The explosion will leave behind long lasting impact.
Our team immediately responded to this crisis and headed down to Beirut and Launched the Emergency Response Campaign in the City. They are currently cooperating with local organizations and preparing supplies needed to support families in the Lebanese Capital.
