The Situation in Lebanon has continuously spiralled down from
bad to worse over the past 2 years
No food. No medicine. No jobs. No electricity and now no fuel. The situation in Lebanon has continuously spiralled down from bad to worse over the past 2 years with the Central Bank ending fuel subsidies, making the resource impossible to attain for many.
Unfortunately, this is topped by the news with an explosion in Akkar on Sunday morning that has taken 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 don’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.
