Challenge

Lebanon was already suffering a major economic crisis before the explosion in Beirut on August 4th, 2020, which left at least 154 people dead, 5,000 injured and 300,000 homeless (as of 8/7/20). The World Health Organization said the health system was seriously damaged, with three hospitals out of action.

Solution

Global Health Charities is raising funds to meet the needs of health care providers. We will identify the most critical needs by working through Fr. Elie Madi at the Maronite MIssionaries in Beirut, as well as contacts at two hospitals: St. John's Hospital and Rizk Hospital.

Long-Term Impact

By providing funding for scarce and desperately needed health care supplies, we will assist health care professionals do their job to the best of their abilities, and safely. Specifics are coming in day by day, but as of 8/7/20, the following were needed: sutures, IV supplies, PPE, and other simple medical supplies, and possibly equipment.
