The Beirut Brigade of the Lebanese firefighters witnessed first-hand the tragedy of the Beirut explosion on August 4, 2020, where 10 of their comrades died while battling the blaze. Since then, they have remained on the ground, putting out fires, scanning and rescuing the injured and pulling bodies and remains from the rubble. While we cannot replace these losses, we aim to raise funds for necessary equipment for their safety and continuity in their honorable mission.
Volunteer firefighters are risking their lives day-in and day-out to save others. Despite being severely under-equipped, they are among the first to respond to any emergency, as we saw after the devastating explosion on August 4, 2020 that killed 10 volunteer firefighters from the Beirut Fire Brigade.
The Nawaya Network is aiming to raise up to $15,000 to help them purchase and replace necessary equipment that will help keep them safe while doing their heroic work to save others.
Ensuring the firefighters are properly equipped to perform their duties, and have the right protective gear to secure their safety to increase their ability to respond to emergencies.
