SOLIDARITY WITH LEBANON
International call to donors
On Tuesday August 4, explosions destroyed the port of Beirut and several districts of the capital of Lebanon. The human toll of this disaster is tens of deaths, thousands of wounded as well as many missing and displaced. The material damage is enormous and hundreds of thousands of households are affected, finding themselves homeless, food insecure, and destitute – this calls for national mobilization. This disaster that has struck Beirut affects us all gravely, as for months, Lebanon has been facing multiple crises – COVID-19, severe economic downturn and growing humanitarian needs.
Teams from the 25 health and social centers and 9 mobile units of Amel Association International (Amel) are continuing to assess the needs resulting from the disaster, and are implementing an emergency response in the field. Our NGO, non-sectarian and present in Lebanon since 1979, invites all individuals, partners and friends of the association, to contribute to its call for donations.
Locally, we have launched an appeal for donations (food, clothing, etc.) available online: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=3595907597109728&id=218029528230902
Internationally, we are calling for donations that will allow us to meet urgent needs including:
– Protective equipment and medicines;
– Health support;
– Rehabilitation of the affected areas.
