Challenge

Thousands of people have been severely wounded in a huge blast that ripped through Lebanon's capital, Beirut, and the number of deaths is still rising. Hospitals are working overcapacity and some parts of hospitals destroyed. Some media outlets are reporting that a wheat storage facility has also been destroyed and toxic gases are around the area where the explosion took place. Explosions, COVID19, an economic crisis, Lockdowns; what is more yet to come?!!!!!

Solution

URDA is sending an emergency appeal to support people in Lebanon with medical supplies for the wounded, food parcels for those whose houses have been destroyed, medicine, and medical aid for the clinics and hospitals in dire need of assistance. Support Lebanon as people are struggling to pass each day with dignity!

Long-Term Impact

This project will save the lives of hundreds of families. People are fighting for their lives right now in hospitals and many have lost their homes, belongings, and properties. Your contribution will save a life!
