Beirut In Ruins
The capital is still struggling
On the 4th of August 2020, a colossal explosion tore through Beirut destroying everything in its path, a blast so powerful the waves could be felt as far as Cyprus! The largest non-nuclear explosion ever recorded. The capital is still struggling to come to terms with the deadly events of that fateful day.
A catastrophic blow to a country already struggling to tackle a deadly virus.
Over 100 people had been confirmed dead but sadly with many still missing this number was expected to rocket in the days following, as emergency workers desperately dug through the rubble to search for survivors.
With over 4,000 injured, hospitals and medical facilities were overwhelmed with patients requiring lifesaving treatment bringing them to breaking point.
The damage had been catastrophic with thousands of homes, businesses, hospitals and schools totally flattened, leaving the city and its residents in utter turmoil.
As a charity that vows to provide relief during the toughest emergencies, Global Rahmah Foundation is ready to answer the call. We have setup an emergency Lebanon appeal to help the victims of the explosion. With a team on the ground ready to provide around the clock assistance, we need your help and support to reach as many people as possible.
With the mayor of Beirut stating that over 200,000 people have been made homeless within a day, there is no time to waste, Lebanon needs us now!

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.”
