The situation in Lebanon has continuously spiraled from bad to worse over the past 3 years
No food. No medicine. No jobs. No electricity and now no fuel. With the Central Bank ending fuel subsidies, making the resource impossible to attain for many.
Unfortunately, this was topped by the news with an explosion in Akkar on August 4, 2020, which took the lives of at least 28 people and injured 79 more who were waiting in line for the distribution of gasoline. Hospitals even turned back severe burn victims as they didn’t have the means to do so.
More than half the country is living below the poverty line with hyperinflation causing the prices of many necessities to skyrocket. The Lebanese Lira has lost its value significantly by 13 fold. People are reaching a breaking point.
Our paramedics team in Lebanon has already been deployed to aid the victims of the explosion along with our volunteers providing hot meals to the staff and families of the victims patiently waiting in hospitals.
With your support let’s help ease the lives of our Lebanese brothers & sisters.
In this case, every dollar truly does count.
