Fund to Support Victims of the Beirut Explosion

Summary

It has been three years since the horrific explosion in Beirut, which killed at least 228 people, injured 7,000, damaged or destroyed 77,000 homes or businesses, and displaced 300,000 people. Three years later, the injured continue to die or suffer from trauma and physical wounds, while families of victims, still grieving, are unable to cover their basic needs due to the economic and financial collapse. This fund will provide support to those left behind by continued governmental negligence.

Challenge

It has been three years since the horrific explosion in Beirut. Three years later, and so many continue to suffer. Those who come from financially-vulnerable backgrounds have been left behind due to lack of health insurance, social safety nets, unemployment/disability insurance, and pensions. Due to the economic collapse in the country, prices have exploded, making food, housing, medicine, health care, and education more difficult to come by.

Solution

This fund has been set up in collaboration with the "Beyond Shattered Glass" book project, to help raise funds for victims of the Beirut explosion. For example, the explosion killed a young mother and father, leaving behind their two little children who are now being cared for by their unemployed grandparents. An unemployed young mother lost her husband and is struggling to care for her three young children. These funds are essential to help them all cover their basic needs.

Long-Term Impact

Funds will help those injured cover their medical/healthcare expenses. The funds will also help families who lost breadwinners cover their housing rent and electricity/generator expenses. Funds will help cover the educational tuition of children who lost their parents, and will provide them with access to quality food and water. Children will also have access to better healthcare. Without these funds, the crime of August 4th is compounded, making them twice victims of governmental negligence.
