Challenge

A huge explosion rocked Beirut city on the evening of August 4, 2020, leaving 157 dead, dozens of missing people, upwards of 5,000 injured, and an estimated 300,000 people homeless. In a country weighed down by an unprecedented economic crisis, exasperated by the outbreak of COVID19, response to a disaster of this magnitude is slow, at best.

Solution

The Nawaya Network and IE Alumni Association are sending an emergency appeal to support the people of Lebanon with medical supplies for the wounded, food parcels, and shelter for those whose houses have been destroyed, basic home repairs for those whose houses are safe to live in but have suffered damage.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims to meet the immediate needs of people affected by this disaster so that they may survive, find shelter, and receive medical care, as well as food and clean drinking water.
